1774 August 24 (Wednesday). Mr. Wilder goes to Lancaster. I wrote by him to Mr. Whitney to preach my next Lecture. The Rain to Day prevented my wifes going to Brookfield which she tells me Mrs. Maynard and she designed to day. I was very much engaged, partly reading Bishop Burnets sermon on Oct. 31, 1714, from Ps. 2.10.11, before King George I by his Majestys Special Command.
