October 28, 1759

1759 October 28 (Sunday).  The Sabbath is the Queen of Days: May it ever be my souls Delight!  I bless God that though I can’t go to meeting my self here is a Servant of God to preach in my Stead, and therefore both my Family and Flock may have the Benefit of Gods Word.  Mr. Dorr preaches a.m. and p.m. on Mat. 3.1.2.  Capt. Maynards Wife dines here.  I feel but poorly Still, but I pray God who has heretofore relieved me, to grant his divine Compassions towards me!  I sat up too late this Evening and had but a poor Night — but especially by reason of the little Children Hannah and Jeduthun, that are very troublesome, having bad Laxes.  Mr. Dorr lodges here.
