March 16, 1727

1727 March 16 (Thursday).  Mr. Sewal preach’d the Lecture on John 15.5.  I din’d at Brother Williams.  In the Evening My Sister Susanna was marry’d to Captain Josiah Willard of Salem by Dr. Mather.[1]  The Ceremony over we Sang Psalm [blank] and the Doctor had many uncommon Observations upon the Concluding words of the psalm and explained Several other Texts in that millenary Scheme.  I must observe here that I had very much Concern upon my Mind lest Every Thing throughout this transaction should not be to the Glory of God, and devout in the Eyes of Men.  But last of all did I Suspect my Self.

[1]Cotton Mather.
