August 12, 1759

1759 August 12 (Sunday).  Met with a great deal of Trouble by Sheep getting into my Corn behind the Meeting House; and Mr. Mannings Horse also unruly, and got into the Corn.  It rained and my Sitting in my Chamber with my Feet wet, gave me a Cold.  Read Esther 4 and Acts 27.  Preach a. and p.m. on 2 Tim. 3.7.  May divine Blessing accompany my weak Essays!  Mr. Fessenden dines here Every Sabbath.  At Night mercifully preserved in the Terrible Storm of Thunder and Lightning.  To God be Glory!
