April 1, 1759

1759 April 1 (Sunday).  Returned to Mr. Maynards.  He is Somewhat more sensible but far from being come to his Reason.  The Woman alive and has had returns of Fitts all Night — looks exceeding Ghastly and terribly.  Prayed with ‘em and returned home — but very much worn and fatigued — have taken Cold and am poorly capable of performing the Divine Services of the Day — Yet I went through them as God enabled me.  I read Ezra 9 and Acts 9.  Preached on Col. 3.34, chiefly latter part.  P.M. repeated sermon on Hos. 7.14, latter part because of the Approching Fast — hoping that Such Meditations might promote (by divine Help) our preparation for that solemnity.  My Wife is So ill She can’t dine with us.
