28. Fri – Rode to picket with letters, bot. two chickens at “3 levies”
ea. of a colored woman bot. them in alive tied to Saddle.
Visited hospitals – found one man very sick – talked with
him & prayed – urged him to immediate acceptance
of Christs offers. About ten – I went in again he was
just gasping in death – Another young man called, to talk
about his soul. He hopes he has today found peace, in believing –
an intelligent young Englishman – seems very fearful
but it should prove illusory - & transient – prayed with him –
Oh – that God would revive his work abundantly here.
