January 12, 1774

1774 January 12 (Wednesday).  An exceeding Cold Season, yet my Son John is at the ministerial Lot cutting wood and sledding from thence.  This Day, as I Suppose, Mr. John Marsh is ordained at Weathersfield.  May his Soul be suitably apprehensive of the weight of the Solemn Charge, and May God most gracious Support him under it; help him in fulfilling, and in finally giving up his Account to God the Judge!
