September 7, 1773

1773 September 7 (Tuesday).  Mr. Hall of Sutton and his son Joseph dined here.  I preached p.m. at Mr. Joseph Grouts because of his Son Josephs languishment, on Isa. 54.13 to page 9 and the addition of the Exhortation in p. 19: which may God graciously bless!  At Eve came Capt. Wilder, his Brother and Sister from Providence, who have been burying their poor Brother Nahum in the very glory of Life.  O how great a Change!  How awful the Thought!  May God Sanctifie this Dispensation to all nearly concerned especially!  To Young Men.
