Last week Dylan's thusfar minor respiratory problems took a turn for the
worse. By Saturday he was sicker than I've ever seen a rat, not wanting/not
able to eat or drink at all. Naturally I rushed him to the vet, who examined
him extensively, and gave him an injection which ought to make him feel
better for a day or two. But Dylan didn't appear to feel better at all,
although he did start to eat small amounts of porridge again.

Today he still showed no signs of improvement, and it became clear to me
that he wouldn't get better. So tonight I returned to the vet to have him
put to sleep. :'( Adieu, my Dillempie.

made the object of the mind, in His all-sufficiency and
willingness to save sinners; but some have their thoughts more
especially fixed on God, in some of His sweet and glorious attributes
manifested in the gospel, and shining forth in the face of Christ. Some
view the all-sufficiency of the mercy and grace of God; some, chiefly
the infinite power of God, and His ability to save them, and to do all
things for them; and some look most at the truth and faithfulness of
God. In some, the truth and certainty of the gospel in general is the
first joyful discovery they have; in others, the certain truth of some
particular promises; in some, the grace and sincerity of God in His
invitations, very commonly in some particular invitation in the mind,
and it now appears real to them that God does indeed invite them. Some
are struck with the glory and wonderfulness of the dying love of Christ;
and some with the sufficiency and preciousness of His ***, as offered
to make an atonement for sin; and others with the value and
