September 29, 1768

1768 September 29 (Thursday).  My Son goes to Watertown.  I have Mr. Bathericks Horse to go to the Fast at Shrewsbury on account of the Public Distresses.  There is no other Minister to assist Mr. Sumner.  He prays and I preached a.m.  My Text was Ezek. V.5 to 9.  I prayed and preached p.m.  Text was Mat. 24.12.  There was a good attendance.  I wish a divine Influence might be afforded!  Mr. Hawley of Mashpee came to us there, after Meeting, upon his Journey to Northampton.  Visit Capt. Nathaniel Allen who is confined by a bad Toe, which tis feared will mortifie.  Called at Mr. Samuel Fays in my return home at Night.
