September 26, 1772

1772 September 16 (Wednesday).  This Day I begin my 70th Year.  Surprizing, astonishing, adorable Goodness and longsuffering of God!  Vid. natal.  Mr. Stone came.  Dined with us and preached my Lecture on 1 Cor. 6.19,  a Serious, profitable Discourse!  May a divine Influence accompany it for our Spiritual Good!  He returned home at Evening.  At Night came Mr. Searl of Stoneham from New-Haven, and lodged here.
