1759 July 22 (Sunday). Read Esther Ch. 1 and Act. 24. Preached a. and p.m. on Jer. 4.4, latter part, repeating with variations some parts of Sermon on 2 Sam. 21.14 from p. 9 to p. 22. Master Fessenden dined with us. N.B. when I appointed the Lecture I added a Number of Arguments and Encouragements to the Assembly to induce them to attend it.
