1772 September 2 (Wednesday). Was willing to attend the Ministers Meeting at Mr. Jones’s, Western. Went with Mr. Ruggles and Mr. Forbes, and their Wives. Was obliged to preach the Publick Lecture. Mr. Ruggles prayed. My Text was Ps. 139.23.24. The Rain prevailed so that many Stayed there. I lodged with Mr. White of Hardwick. N.B. At this Meeting there were 12 Ministers and 2 Candidates. May God add His Almighty Blessing!
