1782 August 25 (Sunday). Preached on Prov. 12.26, former part, a. and p.m. Mrs. Maynard dines here. P.M. I appointed the Communion and acquainted the Congregation with what the Church had voted with respect to a Fast, and recommended it to them. I desired them to manifest their Consent by Rising up, which they did — to be next Thursday, by leave and Help of God.
