Alas! poor ungrateful rebellious wretches.
How unworthy of the Good God who hath

know not the end thereof how soon we may
find it. Lord prepare me make me watchful

Through the mercy of Providence we are again
brought the close of another day which has been very
cold and I fear many have trembled and sorrowed
this day for the lack of comfort and nourishment.
