We called also to see Miss Dilly Fay, who is Sick, and is poor.  We went to Mr. Gleasons and I left her there, She declining to go with me to Shrewsbury.  I dined at Mr. Sumners.  Mr. Buckminster (the young Gentleman) was there.  I persuaded him to preach in my stead, the public Lecture.  He performed very agreeably and profitably.
