January 31, 1780

1780 January 31 (Monday).  Read in Fleming and Chesterfield’s Letters.  Mr. Nathan Maynard borrows several of Mr. Prince’s Sermons.  Hear that Sue Bimeleck was lately frozen to Death.  This whole month has been Cold to admiration.  We have scarce ever known its Equal.  The Cold of this Day is to high Degree of Extremity.  May God Almighty sustain and support us, protect and supply us, and extend Compassion to all the Indigent, the aged and the Exposed!
