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.
