1745 May 31 (Friday). Mr. Cushing and Mr. Morse came up from Boston; and they gave me Some Account of what had been done at the Election and at the Convention. In particular at the latter Mr. Clark of Salem Village preach’d a Seasonable, Close sermon with regard to Mr. Whitefields Errors of mis-conduct — and both he and his wife were present. The Collection was large, £290 Old Tenor. In the Convention Mr. Gee and others made proposals of Subscribing the Platform and Confession of Faith; or Some other good Draught — but it was rejected. Mr. Prince no longer Clerk, but Mr. Turell chose in his Room.
Rev. Peter Clark of Danvers.
Rev. Joshua Gee of Boston.
Rev. Thomas Prince of Boston.
Rev. Ebenezer Turell of Medford.
