September 8, 1765

1765 September 8 (Sunday).  Preached a.m. on Ps. 83.3 — thy hidden Ones.  Made great Use of Sermon on Col. 3.3, viz. from p. 19 to p. 24.  For my other Sermon engrossed all my Time — my reading upon the Subject and writing so much — double the pages of an Ordinary Sermon.  I administered the Lords supper, and Daughter Forbes with us.  Good old Deacon Forbes, Mr. Kendal and his Wife, and Mrs. Maynard dined with us.  P.M. preached again on 1 Pet.  I was obliged to speak very fast and a great while, to deliver it.  May the Lord prosper and Succeed it, to His own Glory.  N.B. Read a.m. Isa. 2.  P.M. omit reading because it was late and sermon like to be long.  My Daughter Baldwin so poorly, She was not able to go to Meeting.
