June 27, 1781

1781 June 27 (Wednesday).  Elias would have gone upon his Journey to Northampton, but it was too wet weather.  P.M. Capt. Fisher came and after general Discourse of the News, and particularly of the Troubles of the British Factorys in the East Indies by Heideralli Kan with a great Army against Ascot, and other places on Coromandet Coast; and was going after, he broached his Exceptions against my late Sacrament Sermons on the Guilt of unworthy Receiving the Lords Supper: wherein I asserted that in Several Respects our Guilt was more heinous than that of the Jews that crucifyed our Lord.  He could not See through it — But went away modestly and in Civility.  There was not time to Say much.
