August 7, 1757

1757 August 7 (Sunday).  Sorrowful Tidings!  That the French and Indians have shot, and carryed off prisoners, nigh 300 Men, who were a scout from one of our upper Forts; and that a great Army were coming to beset Fort William Henry.  I read 2 K. 24.  Preached a. and p.m. on Ps. 119.126 and finished what I had to say on that subject.  P.M. read Mark 16.  May God set home by His holy Spirit what has been delivered agreeable to his Will.
