August 11, 1747

1747 August 11 (Tuesday).  Association at Mr. Morse’s, north Shrewsbury.  Met Mr. Martyn at Mr. Josiah Bowkers. A Considerable Number at Meeting.  But Father Prentice yet languishes and cannot get there. Mr. Goss read his Concio on John 21.15.  N.B. Mr. Marsh of Narragansett, with his Brethren that were against him, the principal of them came with their Grievances and Difficultys.  This took up most of our Time to Day. They were advis’d to choose a Council. With this they comply’d, and chose the churchs under the pastoral Care of the Reverend Messrs. Loring, Cushing, Williams of Waltham, Stone and Smith.
