February 10, 1760

1760 February 10 (Sunday).  Mr. Joseph Baker calls up my Wife at 3 o’Clock in the Morning to assist his Wife in her Labour.  Read Job 8, Rom. 10.  Preached a.m. on Song 6.10, carrying on the Subject of Last Lords Day.  P.M. was not prepared with a New sermon by Means of the Interruptions and Avocations of the Last Week — (but may God forgive my Negligence through Jesus Christ!) On Consideration of the News from Europe preached on Deut. 32.15 with some Alterations.  At Eve Merchant Rice sent for me to Visit him being Sick of a Fever.  And I accordingly went.  My Wife did not return till nigh midnight from Mrs. Baker.
