March 4, 1820 – no entry. (Thaddeus Journal)
March 4th. It is now five months since I bade you adieu, & cast a last look at your hospitable dwelling. The time which has since expired appears like a dream.
“Well if our days must fly,
We’ll keep their end in sight;
We’ll spend them all in wisdom’s way.
And let them speed their flight.”
But as swiftly as time flies I do not wish to retard its progress. It is my most ardent desire to spend & be spent in the service of my Maker; & of how little consequence is it whether our lives be long or short if God be glorified. I delight to put my trust in Him who is able to keep me – to protect & guide me in all my ways; – & when my work on earth is finished, to receive me to mansions of eternal rest. May I at length meet you there, with all my dear beloved friends and be so happy as to spend an eternity in singing praises to God our Redeemer. (Mercy Partridge Whitney Journal)
