August 12, 1771

1771 August 12 (Monday).  Visit Mrs. Parker, under the remainder of her Bruises and Jarrs by her Fall.  She seems to be in many Spiritual Troubles.  Discoursed and prayed with her.  At my returning home I grew more indisposed.  P.M. had aguish Turns, repaired to the Bed.  At Evening came Mr. Forbes from Brookfield and Mr. Aaron Crosby with him.  The latter does not lodge here.  I had a feverish turn; gentle perspiration was promoted — a Pultice of Malt was doubtless beneficial.
