June 8, 1747

1747 June 8 (Monday).  Early in the Morning came Mr. Jenison and we had some Discourse together about my unwillingness that he Should preach.  Mr. Whitney here afterwards — gave him some admonitory Caution about keeping to such word as he gives about Work, if not promising yet encouraging his Customers to have it done — and if it be in little Things yet to have proper Regard to it.  Mr. Josiah Bowker call’d to see me just before I mounted to go to Marlborough. I call’d at Mr. David Brighams and at Levi’s. Din’d at Mr. Smiths. Went to Mr. Williams and talk’d with him on the Affair of binding Thomme — but he would insist for my finding his Cloths.  We did not proceed — but suspended it for the present. Was at Dr. Gotts and call’d at Mr. Matthias Rices. Barrs for my Book of the Platform etc.
