May 12, 1768

1768 May 12 (Thursday).  Held at Catechetical Exercise.  14 Young Women came.  Began at Question 85.  I took no Text; but opened both the Question and Answer in a more general brief pathetick manner, then pitched upon Faith in particular and used from p. 4 to 8th of sermon on John 3.36.  Mrs. Butler, from Framingham, who resides at her Nephew’s, Deacon Wood, came to see us.  Mrs. Wood accompanys her here.  I was sent for to the Raising of Levi Warrins New House.  Sang Ps. 128, omitting v. [blank] in Dr. Watts’s Version.  Persis.  My mare very ill.
