December 29, 1769

1769 December 29 (Friday).  Mr. Stone and I drew up some Account of Mrs. Loring, to be sent to Mr. Draper.  Took leave of our Mournful Venerable Father, and rode together to Mr. Stones and dined there.  Came home safe, through divine Goodness and found my Tabernacle in Peace.  And O that I might have proper Reflections, and that I might make a right Improvement of Gods holy Dispensations!  May God be gracious to His Aged Servant that I have left, and afford Him all supplys and Consolations as he now needs!  And remember his Family, his distant Progeny — to the fifth Generation.  He baptized one last Lords Day; Mary, after the Name of her great great grandmother, whose Corps lay there by the Walls.
