August 2, 1778

1778 August 2 (Sunday).  A.M. on Gen. 2.18.  P.M. on Amos 3.2.  I was Somewhat faint after the Exercises — but God graciously sustained me.  I perceive that Extremity obliges the Committee for enlisting Soldiers to be engaged in that Business to Day.  And I hear also a Number of Teams are gone from hence to Rhode Island with Provision for the Army, this Day.  Ruth Buck was propounded.
