1727 March 27, 28, 29 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday). I was closely and Strictly Engaged in My Sermons and in my Enquiries into [blot] of the Land and of my People, particularly that I might prepare my Self for the Solemnity drawing nigh. But it is to be remark’d that the 27th was a very Tempestuous, Cold, Snowy Time, at which my Brother John Parkman was Shipwreck’d at Cape Ann. The Thirtieth was Publick Fast. I preach’d upon Ps. 51.10 all Day and Endeavour’d to improve the Day also as preparation for our Sacrament.
