April 17, 1776

1776 April 17 (Wednesday).  Mr. Bradshaw leaves us to go home to New Braintry.  Mr. Stone did not come to preach.  I preached myself to a few that came.  I preached on Ps. 2.11, having regard to Gods Goodness in the precipitant Removal of the Kings Forces from Boston and Castle William by which means the Capital is opened for the Inhabitants to re-enter the Town with Freeness.
