June 27, 1757

1757 June 27 (Monday).  I returned home in the morning.  My Boys finished the Second Hoing.  Amon here to help ‘em.  The rest of the forenoon and p.m.  Cleared.  Old Mrs. Whipple dyed yesterday, and was buryed to Day, just 12 Weeks after her Husband.  And I remember She told me her Husband had said to her just before his Death, that he did not think She would outlive him above 3 months.  She Seemed to be a religious Woman and gave reason to hope She was in Christ nor was She afraid to dye.  She told me that when her Husband dyed, the Lord took her up, and manifested his Grace to her, more clearly than Ever.  I wish I might rightly improve Such a Death.  Lord make me know my End!  N.B. Great Disorder yesterday in the singing, which was led by Mr. Batherick.  N.B. Last Sabbath he himself went out; tis thought disturbed with the Singing.  Lt. Maynard and others set their Stables to rights, having been greatly disordered by the Storms, a Year and more agoe.  N.B. Sent Mr. Ebenezer Cutlers Money (reposed with me for that End) to Rev. Stone of Southborough per Hand of Judge Ward, who was here again about printing my Sermon on Ez. 22.30.  N.B. Abner Sawyor of Lancaster dined here.
