1765 April 18 (Thursday). Publick Fast. Preached a. and p.m. on Ps. 65.5.11. Had a Contribution for Deacon Charles Woods of [blank] whose House was burnt on [blank]. At my Wife’s motion we omitted having a Sett Meal immediately after the last Meeting but had our Supper as usual Except that lesser Children had something given them. I would avoid Superstition but Should be glad to reform what ever has been amiss. The Lord accept our Offerings!
