October 18, 1769

1769 October 18 (Wednesday).  I lodged there.  Mr. Barrett had several turns of Bleeding last night, and is faint and dizzy, this Morning but grew better afterwards and went to the Lecture.  There was no body to preach but I.  And therefore though I preached the last meeting, I was obliged to again.  Text was Heb. XII.25.  Dined at Mr. Barretts.  Borrow of him Dr. Mathers Magnalia.  As I was returning Lt. John Wood besought me to go in to see his Wife, under her sorrowful Deafness, and at his earnest Request I prayed there.  When I came home Ezra Ripley was come for my grand-Daughter Polly Forbes.  He lodges here.
