1776 January 27 (Saturday). Mr. Bowen here, going to preach at Chauxit. He asks Advice, which I cannot give. Refer him to Mr. Stone who was at the Council there, and has the Result (which I have not). As was Mr. Whitney, and has it also (I suppose) and therefore he goes there. At Eve I went to Mr. Nathaniel Whitneys, who was dying. He departed while I sat there. I prayed with the living — and then returned.
