1727 January 5 (Thursday). I went to Lecture and heard Mr. Prince Excellently preach on Prov. 27.1. I met with my dear friend Mr. Greenwood after his long absence from me and was made acquainted with his Design of Setting up an experimental Course of Mechanical Philosophy. I hope it will be followed with the Divine Blessing and all his other good Designs succeeded. Mr. Gee invited us to dine with him. I spent a part of my Afternoon with a great deal of Delight (there being other very good Friends there) but I was oblig’d to Engage my Self in my Necessary affairs. It was raining but I was much constrain’d to go as far as Cambridge and I reach’d there.
Reverend Thomas Prince of the Old South Church.
