1767 April 5 (Sunday). I read Isa. 51. Preached a.m. on Occasion of the sorrowful Death, on 1 Thess. 4.13. Read also v. 14, but could not handle that. Capt. Tainter and his Sisters, Hastings and Whitney, dined here. P.M. read Joh. 16 and gathered up from divers parts of sermon on Isa. 57.1.2, a Discourse on the same mournful Occasion, and Subjoined some Character of the Deacon. And wish it may be without Offence, and profitable!
