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 respected -
 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 -
