Diary entry 16 years after wifes death.

Description

Jan 13th
On this day for the last sixteen years I have been in habit of recording/anniversary of my wretched widowed state. I am now blessed be God, no longer a widower, since it has please him on the 25th of November last, to bestow on me, according to my prayer for 15 years past "a kind tender and affectionate wife" and though humbly thankful for this and the numerous other blessings his Kind Providence has bestowed upon me, a poor worm of dust, I can never cease to regard with the most tender recollection the exalted virtues and tender affections of Her, who for 24 years of my life, in sweet communion constituted my chief earthly happiness- of whom on this day 17 years ago, the lord, in his wisdom, bereaved me and I doubt not called her to the abode of everlasting felicity.
