July 7, 1751

1751 July 7 (Sunday).  Had not compleated what I design’d for the Sacramental Exercise, and by Reason of my Circumstances, together with my indisposedness (not without too Criminal Indisposedness of Mind and Negligence) could prepare no other; and therefore repeat’d both a. and p.m.  Read Numb. 6.  Preach’d on 1 Cor. 5.7.  Administer’d the Lord’s Supper.  My Wife and Daughter tarried at the Meeting House.  I din’d at the Justice’s.  P.M. read Acts 21.  Preach’d on 1 Cor. 5.6.7.8.  N.B. I expressly told the Audience it was not what I had design’d, but what they had had before.  Appointed Church Meeting and Catechizing at Mr. Joslins.
