May 19, 1782

1782 May 19 (Sunday).  Preached a. and p.m. on Rom. 3.24, and finished on that Subject.  Mrs. Maynard dined with us.  I publickly mentioned the Desire of the Singers and others, to begin the Publick Worship with Singing: and prayed the Congregation to assemble Earlier.  At Evening Polly Scott was Suddenly taken ill, and fell into a terrible Fitt — striving violently for a long time.  May God pity her and Sanctifie so Strange Convulsions, to all of us!  Breck and Pamela sit up.
