November 1, 1774

1774 November 1 (Tuesday).  Preached at Mr. Jonathan Grouts on Eph. VI.13-18.  Which many the divine Blessing accompany, and enable us to take to us that whole Armour of God!  There were but few that attended: especially but very few men. Only four: and but 3 of them that were Members and Supporters of these Meetings, besides the man of the House — viz. Capt. B. Fay, and Messrs. Nathaniel Whitney and B. Tainter.  A great Discouragement! N.B. I had visited Joseph Grout junior in his Languishment — with [whom] I conversed and prayed: and there I dined.
