September 4, 1768

1768 September 4 (Sunday).  Read Jer. 33 and p.m. Read Rom. 6.  Was disappointed of Help in preaching — having writ to and depended, on Mr. Cushing to come, that he might go with me to Mr. Moore’s Ordination but he did not come.  I was so hindered by the Barn and preparing my self for the Ordination that I was obliged to use a. and p.m. former Compositions, altered to the present Time, viz. on Hos. 9.12.  We had a Contribution for Montreal.  N.B. a Letter from Mr. Hutchinson to change the Private Meeting at Mr. Tainters, from Tuesday to Wednesday next: of which I gave the people Notice.
