1781 February 14 (Wednesday). Mr. P. Whitney and wife made us a Visit in their Sleigh. Dined. Tea. Breck returned from Newtown, from Mr. Josiah Fullers: and Sophy from Ashburnham — informs that Alexander is not well: is Rheumatic. She brings me a Letter from Mr. Cushing who informs me of the Dismission and silencing of Mr. Cummings of Marlborough in New Hampshire for Immorality. A sorrowful Providence! He sends me also a Book containing 14 Sermons by Mr. Thomas Haweis on Evangelical Principles and Practices.
