November 17, 1726

1726 November 17 (Thursday).  In the Morning I rode to Shrewsbury to Mr. Cushing.  There was Captain Baker of Brookfield.  Mr. Cushing rode with me to Lancaster.  Mr. Prentice was come out to go to Meeting.  He had Some Expectation of my Coming.  He gave me his Bible and I preach on (a Text I had not Design’d to, but I was straitned for Time and Could not Look over the whole of any Sermon and I therefore chose one I had frequently and somewhat lately preach’d) Acts 16.24.  We tarried all night at Mr. Prentice’s, and had good Entertainment.
