March 8, 1771

1771 March 8 (Friday).  Master Taylor here and tells me he heard Mr. Ely at Mr. Tainters yesterday, and a considerable Assembly attended.  The Text was Jer. 8.22, “Is there no Balm in Gilead”? etc.  Very loud, very affecting.  He intends to try to preach at Hopkinton next Sabbath; but Mr. Hutchinson has agreed to go there for that Day.
