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.
