February 26, 1747

1747 February 26 (Thursday).  Though we were adjourn’d to eight o’Clock this Morning yet the Church did not come together till noon, nor any of the offended in any season for us to begin our Business.  The Remainder of the Hearing was up in Neighbour Rice’s Chamber. Towards Evening Mr. Hall return’d Home — though our Business was extreme arduous. We apply’d ourselves with some Resolution to prepare our Judgment and gather up a Result.  In this we spent the Whole Night — I never put off my Cloths, yet Mr. Martyn and Mr. Stone Slept not at all.
