James Woodforde -- 14 april 1767

At his family home in Somerset: April 14th, 1767
I read Prayers this morning again at C. Cary Church - I prayed for poor James Burge this morning, out of my own head, hearing he was just gone of almost in a Consumption.
It occasioned a great tremulation in my voice at the time — I went after Prayers and saw him, & he was but just alive -
He was a very good sort of young man & much refpected - It was the Evil which was stopped & then fell upon his Lungs —
Grant O Almighty God, that he may be eternally happy hereafter -
I dined, supped and spent the Evening at Parsonage -


James Woodforde (1740-1803) was dominee in het dorp Weston Longville in het Engelse Norfolk. Hij hield 44 jaar een dagboek bij; gedeeltes daaruit zijn gepubliceerd als The Diary of a Country Parson 1758 – 1802.
