December 4, 1773

1773 December 4 (Saturday).  Mr. Mellen of Chauxit calls here.  He confirms the Shocking Story of President Locks awful Fall!  O how lamentable this Dispensation of divine Providence!  How unsearchable are Gods Judgments!  May I suitably improve this [tremendous?] Tryal!  Thanks to God for His restraining Grace to me!  And let him that thinks he Stands take heed lest he fall.  Breck returned — and Hannah with him.
