MARYLAND March 13, 1777233 Thursday, 13. At William McCubbin's (?)13 many were much wrought upon by the Spirit of God, under the word: Alice Woodward especially was so deeply affected, that she had scarce power to contain herself. I saw a fresh proof that the life of man is quite uncertain: a tobacco house was blown down and killed a Negro man.
My heart was deeply engaged in prayer, especially for the inhabitants of Annapolis. My confidence in God was so great, that I could trust him with my body and soul, and all my little concerns. He makes me a partaker of his spiritual kingdom-righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
13 William McCubbin was a son of Moses McCubbin, who resided on the north side of South River in Anne Arundel County. (D.C. Genealogical Records' Committee, Vol. Lxxiii, 68, 69; Warfield: The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties.)
