his brethren, so it is no part of the design of the
compiler of these papers, to exhibit him before his
readers as an extraordinary man. In his diary,
which is but little more than a brief notice annually,
of some of the providences of God toward him and
his family, with his reflections upon them, are such
feelings expressed as every man, under similar
circumstances, may be supposed to indulge; and
