1761 March 15 (Sunday). Read Ps. 6.and 2 Cor. 13. Mr. Fessenden a.m. on Col. 3.2 and p.m. on 1 Joh. 4.19. Cousen Maynard dined here. The Kitchen (as Usual) very much filled. After the Exercises Stopped the Church and acquainted them with the Petition for a Church Meeting; read it, with the Names to it. Asked the Church for their Thoughts — And told ‘em that I was So desirous of preserving Peace and good Harmony in the Church, that I was a mind to acquaint ‘em with that so whatever was done about it, might be with their Concurrence. Nobody Answered though I gave space. And therefore taking it to be their mind to have a Meeting, I appointed it — to be on Tuesday next, at 2 p.m.
