Mary Heath a-washing for me all day and dined with me on a piece of bacon and some peas. In the afternoon went to attend the funeral of Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Diplock, who was brought to church about 5:40 and for whom there was a sermon from Revelation 22:12: “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” This person died suddenly, though she was 73 years of age.

In the evening wrote my London letters. Thomas Davy and Mary Heath lodged at my house. Oh, my trouble: how pensively and melancholy is my situation.
