1778 August 30 (Sunday). Preached on Mat. 16.26 a. p.m. (at Mendon) which may God graciously Succeed! We have been very much alarmed with bad news from Rhode Island; but at Evening a more favorable Account. At noon I was kindly entertained by Mrs. Wilder (Mr. Caleb’s Wife). Her Husband is at the Eastward. After Meeting went (by Invitation) to Judge Dorr’s — where the very aged Squire Tyler came to make me a Visit. He was 91 last February and is Still alert. He accompanyed me to Mr. Willards, where I lodged.
