1746 June 19 (Thursday). Preach’d at Shrewsbury Lecture on Rom. 6.13. Yield yourself to God. N.B. Not many at meeting. There was a Training yesterday and another to be tomorrow — besides that it was good weather for Business after much hindrance by the late Rains. N.B. Captain Caleb Johnsons House was greatly wreck’d by the Thunder Yesterday Morning and the Lives of the Family marvellously Spar’d. N.B. Lieutenant Stone came to Speak with me about my Letter, lately Sent to Mr. Cushing in which it was Suppos’d I severely check’d the Young Society there for their undutifulness to their pastor. I had prepar’d an Answer and deliver’d it by Lieutenant’s Hands. At Eve when I return’d to my own House I found there Mr. Elisha Whittlesey of Wallingford and Mrs. Sara Noyes of New Haven who lodg’d here.
