August 4, 1723

1723 August 4 (Sunday).  In the Morning I was much Better, but my Sore Throat continued.  I preach’d all Day on 1 Sam. 16.7.  I din’d at Deacon Haywoods.  I was obliged to retire to finish my Sermon at Noon Time.  Sundry Persons (as Mr. Flagg,[1] etc.) came in to see me in the Evening.

[1]Either Benjamin Flagg (1662-1741) or his son Captain Benjamin Flagg (1690-1751).
