1738 September 17 (Sunday). Too much indispos’d still for my public Service, yet was oblig’d to try. Mr. Hunt preach’d a.m. on Tit. 3.2. I din’d at Mr. Noyes’s. N.B. I left my Bible at Home when I went to meeting p.m. I hastily fetch’d it. Mr. Noyes pray’d. I preach’d on Job 19.25. Supp’d at Mr. Noyes’s. N.B. Old Mr. Warham Mather, the Rector and Mr. Daniel Edwards there after Supper. Walk’d to Mr. Prouts where we were very kindly receiv’d. From thence we retir’d home. Several very Cool Nights.
