April 18, 1765

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!
