April 13, 1781

1781 April 13 (Friday).  It has been a Night of Distress with dear Suse — but God all-sufficient was almightily present, and a Child was born 15 minutes after One o’clock.  To His glorious Name be all Glory and Praise!  This Morning we all rejoiced.  They needed to rally only the two Mothers and the two nearest Neighbours, Mrs. Lamson and Mrs. Harrington.  Dr. Ball was the Instrument in the Hand of God: and Successfull, through His Concurrence.  This Day is called Good Friday, because it was the Birth Day of Christ.  Towards Eve Elias waited on our Sister Brigham home, and She has got little Hannah Breck with her.
