July 8, 1757

1757 July 8 (Friday).  Dr. Crosby here.  P.M. there was (as I was informed) an Earthquake.  May the Lord of His infinite Goodness and Mercy grant us Grace to improve it!  I suppose the reason why I did not perceive it was, my attention at that juncture to Shutting a Door which was repeatedly thrown to by the Wind.  So that I thought no other than of the Motion by the Door. Mr. Phinehas Gleasons Wife here.  I examined into her Qualifications for special Ordinances though they had both of them owned the Covenant in Framingham.  I was not well satisfyed with their Attainments.
