1771 October 17 (Thursday). Have understood that Ensign Fays Wife has bled a great deal, and that it has continued ever since last Saturday Night. I made a Visit to her. She asked me to pray with her. I enquired for her Husband? It was answered that he was gone from home. I conversed and prayed with her. When I came away she Still (by her daughter Maynard) desired my Prayers. Mr. Sumner came. Dined here. Preached for me a very Seasonable Lecture sermon on 2 Cor. 13.5, Prove your own.
