1781 June 4 (Monday). Mr. Cushing and Mrs. Cotton leave us for Ashburnham. I rode to Mr. Peter Thatchers at his request and dined there with his Father, who p.m. preached a Lecture there on Ps. 119.63. Exceeding long, but very acceptable — may the Lord graciously add His Blessing! I grew faint, but got home, though poorly. Here I found Sister Champney and Mr. Zechariah Hicks from Sutton. They lodge here.
