1768 January 31 (Sunday). Mr. Smith rode over to the Town, to preach in Mr. Sumners stead, who rides to Westborough to preach for me. I preached for Mr. Morse, a. and p.m. on Phil. 2.1-5. May God grant Success! N.B. A messenger comes into Meeting: Deacon Brooks, one of the Delegates of the Church of Lincoln, was Sent for, to return home; his wife being at the Point of Death: and he left us at noon. At Eve Mr. Smith returned to us — and, Mr. Bush having invited us, we went to his House, and with a Number of Delegates, we Supped there. But returned to Mr. Morse’s, and lodged again there.
