1770 June 4 (Monday). Visited Mr. Daniel Hardys Wife whose Cancer grows much worse. His Daughter Adams also [weak and?] wasting State. Prayed with them. When I have read Mr. Appletons late Fast Discourses, I can’t find any fit Reason for the late House of Representatives to make a Difficulty, as I hear they did, about Printing it.
Nathaniel Appleton (1693-1784), The Right Method…. Discourses on April 5, 1770. Being the Day of General Fasting and Prayer…and in the Time of the Session of the General Court at Cambridge (Boston 1770; Evans 11,554).
