Aug. 4. a goodly harvest week I was doing and had in much corn. heard my little grandchildren ill. my wife rode to see them, I prayed for them with earnestness but humble submission. I am feverish, yet able through mercy to do the work of my ministry. lord bless us and let thy grace be sufficient for us.
