May 18, 1779

1779 May 18 (Tuesday).  I rode Breck’s mare to Bolton, it being Association.  Messrs. Smith, Harrington, Bigelow, Newell present — Messrs. Stone, Bridge and Whitney absent.  Mr. Goss prayed and gave a Concio on Joh. 4.36, especially latter part, with a particular application to what was lately done at the Council in Bolton, accompanyed with Sad Complaints — which after the exercise was over, I made reply to.  But we parted in peace.  In returning I called at Capt. Edward Johnson’s and drank Tea there.  Stopped at Mr. Whitney’s and lodged there.
