October 19, 1774

1774 October 19 (Wednesday).  Mr. Daniel Grosvenor was Ordained at Grafton: but as our Church was not Sent to, I did not go, conceiving that by this their Conduct, they did not desire to see me there.  I spent the Day in Retirement. Not only on my own and their Account but that of the Publick; the Province, and particularly Boston’s.  Breck and Elias went.  At Evening came Mr. Nehemiah Porter, heretofore Minister at Chebacco; and Mr. Avery of Dedham, Candidate; and they lodged here.
