August 18, 1745

1745 August 18 (Sunday).  Rain in the Morning — but So held up afterwards that we had a Comfortable Day.  I preach’d on Isa. 25.9.  Mr. Nathaniel Parker[1] of Newton with us at Communion — and here at noon time but did not dine with us.  Deacon Fay and Deacon Forbush din’d here.  P.M. Repeated sermon on Luke 12.21.  Have great reason to mourn over my Dullness and want of Spiritual Taste etc.
