March 27, 1748

1748 March 27 (Sunday).  I was much indisposed yet went through the exercises after my Fashion.  A.M. on Matt. 14.19 to 21.  P.M. Heb. 9.27, Latter clause — improved then in some passages out of sermon on Eccl. 11.9, latter part, viz. pages 3, 4, 5, and 12, 13, with alterations and inverting the order of the articles as was most agreeable.  After the last exercise read the Act of the General Court against profane Cursing and Swearing, and gave reasons why it was not read last Lord’s Day nor the Lord’s Day before.  At eve I was much out of Ease.  Only prayed in the family and Ebenezer read the 25th of Saint Matthew.  I was often aguish or as if I had taken Cold.
