1766 October 26 (Sunday). An Assembly met at my Sons House. We began with Singing. I preached a.m. on Ps. 85.9 and 12. P.M. began again with Singing. Preached on Heb. 12.25. May God grant Success! I baptized two Children Ezra and Rebecca: presented by their mother Mrs. Agnes Whitney wife of Mr. Ezra Whitney, who are of Fitchbourg. The man is gone a great Journey, and the Family about to remove far up into the Woods. The Woman says they have been wont to enjoy this Privilege: that the late Rev. Mr. Trowbridge gave them a Certificat: that there were Witnesses that Rev. Mr. Winchester baptized a Child of theirs at Ashburnham by vertue of it. Accordingly Messrs. Christian, William Whiteman and Jacob Schoff (Germans) testifyed it before the Assembly. I made proclamation of it and repeatedly asked whether there was any Objection? There being none offered, I again asked whether there was any Objection against the Conduct of the woman? But there was none. I then Demanded of her, Whether She would promise to bring up the Children in the Way of true Religion etc.? To which She replyed affirmatively. After which I proceeded and baptized them. N.B. Old Mr. Fitch din’d with us at my Son’s. Mr. Steward preached for me a. and p.m., a.m. [blank].
