April 18, 1738

1738 April 18 (Tuesday).  Brother Hicks and his wife rode upon my Horse to Cambridge.  The Association met at our House, Viz. Mr. Prentice[1] of Lancaster, Mr. Loring,[2] Mr. Cushing, Mr. Stone of Southborough, Mr. Prentice of Grafton (who also brought his Spouse with him).  Mr. Jabez Richardson[3] and Mr. Andrew Boardman likewise came.  No Body was prepared to give a Concio.  At their Request I repeated my Discourse on Eph. 3.10.  Our Conversation turn’d upon the Affairs of Marlborough as they respected the Settlement of Mr. Bliss among them.  Mr. Stone and Mr. Boardman left us.
