1781 August 21 (Tuesday). My son is going to Point Judith for Wool. I rode to Ministers Meeting at West-Sudbury. Found there Messrs. Bridge and Newell: also a Number of other Gentlemen who were not of us, viz. Messrs. Brown of Sherborn, Adams of Acton, Ebenezer Hubbard, ______ Piper — and there came Mr. Fitch and Kellogg. Mr. Brown prayed. I read Osterwald in the Defects of the Clergy as Causes of Corruption among Christians. I rode to my son Williams and lodged there. One Lt. Day there.
