September 1, 1754

1754 September 1 (Sunday).  Read 1 Sam. 8.  Preach’d on Rev. 1.18, and found it best to deliver my whole preparation though I was oblig’d to Speak the faster and to continue somewhat longer than usual.  Administer’d the Lords Supper, took in 3 persons into the Church.  P.M. read Rev. 1.  Repeated on Mat.  Administered Baptism to Several Children and appointed Catechizing at the East part of the Town.  Deacon Forbush and Sir Foster din’d here.  Mr. Baldwin here at Eve and lodg’d here.  O that God would grant us all to understand, and be confirm’d in, be influenced by, and have a Right to the Benefit of the Resurrection of Christ from the Dead!
