1767 August 20 (Thursday). Mr. Cushing with us, and Sir Manning from Cambridge, at Breakfast. Catechized Children at the Meeting House as usual. 49 a.m. 22 p.m. May God accept and bless my weak Endeavours among them! Mr. Cushing left us towards night. I am Earnestly desirous of the Eternal Good of those I have under my Care. This young Gentleman now designs soon to preach. May god Sanctifie him and make him a Vessel of Honour fit for the Masters Use!
