1777 July 13 (Sunday). On consideration of the Sorrowful News that our People have evacuated Ticonderoga, I chose that Text in Isa. 8.17, but after proper Introduction and with various Alterations, I used the last sermon on Micah 7.7. The Widow (of Eliezer) Rice dined with us. P.M. the third time on Hosea 6.4. May God graciously add his Blessing! N.B. Hannah asks publick Prayers.
At Evening Exercise, read (very much for Hannah’s sake) principal part of Mr. John Masons 2d Discourse on Mic. II.10, former part. A good Composition. May the reading of it be savingly blessed to us!
