1747 March 24 (Tuesday). Rainy Still. Attended the Catechetical Exercise to young Women but there were So few that came (only 6 besides my own Girls) that we went not to the meeting House. I discours’d to them next to Extemporarily on the Moral Law, the 10 Commandments, in general the manner of God’s delivering them etc., for I hardly expected anybody to come [in] such wet Weather. N.B. I hear that Eliezer Rice went out of meeting last Lords Day as soon as first prayer was over — because it was Mr. Martyn, and I hear that Mr. Jenison instead of preaching last Sabbath at Mr. Jones’s (of Marlborough) as he has been wont of late, chang’d with Mr. Goss.
The Reverend Thomas Goss of Bolton.
