September 11, 1780

1780 September 11 (Monday).  This Day begins the 44th year since my Marriage with Mrs. P________.  May God be praised for His great Goodness!  May all our Sins throughout all these Years, especially the last, be freely forgiven!  May we both of us be sp’ly Espoused, and mystically united to Jesus Christ, and may God grant us Grace to discharge the Dutys incumbent on us in the Conjugal Connexion!  I dined at Mr. Graves’s with Deacon Dolliber.  Alexander and his Wife, with their Child, from Framingham and lodge here.  [Note in pencil.  Married Sept. 11, 1737, he being 34 years old, minus 5 days — see next page.]
