October 20, 1782

[1782 October 20 (Sunday).]  I endeavored to Preach a.m. on Gal. 6.4, but I could not read the old Notes which I made many years agoe.  Mrs. Maynard dined with us.  P.M. preached on Exod. 14.13.  May God graciously accept!  Mrs. P________ has been very bad with her Cough for Several Nights and is very ill otherwise.  The Lord prepare us for His holy Will!  [In margin: A Letter from Mr. Quincy, of October 5 and 8th.]  Ebenezer at Eve, read Mr. Grove’s Sermon on Heb. 11.13, first Clause.
