June 30, 1771

1771 June 30 (Sunday).  Preached a. and p.m. (at Shrewsbury) on 1 Sam. 4.13.22.  N.B. Mr. Nathaniel Monroe’s Child, Nathan, was baptized.  My Sister Cushing, having returned from Yarmouth, I asked to Mr. Sumners.  In returning home, Stopped a little at Dr. Crosbys, where also Mr. Sumner came.  Tells me he has Preached on Ps. 119.155, both a. and p.m., and that as to Singing, Mr. Whipple Struck the Pitch, and at the 2d Note others fell in and assisted.  When I came home I understood that Joseph Chamberlain went this Morning, and on Foot to Hopkinton which was not agreeable to me.  N.B. Mr. Levi Stone of Sutton brought up yesterday a great Number of New Psalm Books to Deacon Woods — but [illegible] not delivered yet.
