1760 September 23 (Tuesday). A great Cold by yesterdays Ride. Was very aguish when I went to Bed last night. Visited Abner Warrin who is lower and weaker. I discoursed on the Evidences of Faith, whereby he might try himself, but I came away without his, or any one’s mentioning our Praying together. Dr. Crosby and Deacon Barretts Son Samuel (in his Return from New-Haven) dined here. P.M. Mrs. Cushing of Shrewsbury waited on her Mother, Old Madam Prentice here, to make us a Visit.
