May 23, 1781

1781 May 23 (Wednesday).  I again visited Mr. Stone.  Find him low: but his Doctor (Parker) thinks the Symptoms are not worse.  His Mind much the same, very humble before the Great God, and apprehensive of the Vastness of the Work of Dying!  A variety of Visitants — sister Cushing and I went and dined at her sister Brighams — Returned to Mr. Stones — prayed with him, and took (most affectionately) Leave of him, and the Family.  I came home by Mr. Snow’s, where I called a while; but having taken Cold, was not well when I got home.  Mr. Thomas Stone came up and got some Lemons etc.
