August 10, 1778

1778 August 10 (Monday).  As I came home I made a Visit to Mrs. Katharine Allen (wife of Mr. Israel Allen) who is confined by a Cancer.  Mr. Allen also is under much Weakness — conversed and prayed with them.  Lit also at Mr. Jos. Knowltons whose Wife is much better — was at Mr. Gershom Brighams — but especially I hastened to Mr. Broad, who though alive, yet is very low.  The Bleeding has Stopped; but is now dropping.  I pityed, instructed, prayed with him — hastened Mr. Rider (who lives there) for Dr. Ball.  When I got home, Mrs. P______ inclined to go to him.  Am informed that Mr. Sumner preached yesterday on Prov. 22.8 and 2 Cor. 2.16.
