October 28, 1736

1736 October 28 (Thursday).  I rode to Grafton Lecture.  I preached on Joh. 14.21.  N.B. Exceeding few people attended.  Our 12th year finishes since the founding our Church and my Ordination.  God grant a suitable Frame of Soul at the Observation hereof!  N.B. Madam Prentice at Groton.  N.B. Lieut. Drury[1] had been up in to Connecticut and cast Mr. Oliver Ward[2] into Windham Goal.  I returned at Evening.  Deborah rode up to her Mothers this afternoon.
