October 25, 1759

1759 October 25 (Thursday).  Mrs. Wilkins and her sons broke fast here and then went up to Grafton to go to Meeting there.  Lucy, Alexander and John to Mr. Martyns Meeting, it being Publick Thanksgiving for taking Quebeck, but I am as a broken Instrument and sorrowfully laid by!  But I endeavour to Praise God with all my Heart.  May the Lord be pleased graciously to accept out Offerings.  And may we never forget our Obligations.  O when shall the strong Holds of [satan?] in our souls be destroyed and when shall we obtain complete victory over our spiritual Foes!  O Glorious Con[queror?] and Saviour hasten that illustrious Time!  At Eve Nahum Eager came to See his Mistress, Baldwin.
