1779 August 31 (Tuesday). I took a Walk to Mr. Abraham Bonds’ to visit him and his Wife, under their great Affliction by their son John’s continued Lameness. I also went to see and talk with Mrs. Barns being under the Guilt of Fornication. I solemnly called her to Repentance, and I spent some time with Francis’ Wife. Then went to the Men who were out at plough. When returned Home, I found here Rev. Mr. David Ripley of Abington in Connectic. who dined with me and went on his Way.
