1781 August 2 (Thursday). Mr. Brigham goes to Boston. As I was writing to Mr. Quincy, Mr. Joseph Freeland came with urgency to have me visit his Sister, the Widow Hall at Hopkinton. I had Mr. Nurse’s Horse to go there. I first went to Mr. Fitch’s and dined there. I attended the Lecture. Mr. Kellogg preached on Joh. 15.12, “This is my Commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you.” Extremely thin Congregation. After Meeting I went to Mr. Barretts to See the little and very confused remainder of his Books. From thence I hastened to Mr. Joseph Freelands and there, Saw Mrs. Hall. I conversed and prayed with her. She appears to me to be much under the power of Hysteric Affections. May God graciously visit and relieve her!
