October 18, 1759

1759 October 18 (Thursday).  The worst Night I have had yet — Fever, pain in my stomach, causing Difficult Breathing.  Have some sense of the Dealings of God with me.  D.G.  I look to Him through Jesus Christ.  Alexander goes to the Doctors early — comes with him before Noon.  P.M. he gives me a vomit — Epicac. mixt Turbith.  Worked 5 Times up with Nothing downward.  Deacon Tainter and son with Team, Capt. Wood and Neighbour Zebulun Rice, Joseph and Jonathan Grout gathered and brought up my Island Corn, and with Others to Assist husked it out.
