Cabot [1706-1756] was the minister in Killingly, Connecticut. His heartbreaking Sermon confesses, "We are (at best) poor short sighted creatures that can see but a very little way into Things ...But God sees with other and clearer Eyes. His Thoughts are not like our Thoughts." After the usual religious consolations, Cabot says, "I can't leave off till I thus publickly express my unfeigned Gratitude for all the Kindnesses you have shown to me, and my dear deceased in the Time of their distressing Sickness. This Labour of Love will not soon nor easily be forgotten."
