1776 July 8 (Monday). I did so; Mr. Joseph Willard of Mendon prayed before it, and I after it. My Text was Joh. 18.11. N.B. Dined at Mr. Grosvenors, and was there after Exercises, as was Mr. Plumb a Young Preacher. I called at Mr. Hutchinsons who was not at home, and at Capt. Phillips’s. I returned home at Evening safely. D.G. O that I might my Self have Grace to improve the Word and Providences of God which are so affecting!
