June 1, 1736

1736 June 1 (Tuesday).  Neighbour Hezekiah Pratt lent me his Mare to ride to the Association at Lancaster.  In my way I visited Lieut. Holloway’s Family, Mr. Wheelers and Mr. Livermore’s.  N.B. Mr. Livermore languishing.  Mr. James Ball rode with me over as far as one Larkins on the Edge of Lancaster.  A great and mercifull Shower of Rain when I got within about 1/2 a mile of the meeting House — but I was Seasonably Sheltered.  Thin meeting of ministers.  Mr. Loring and Mr. Cushing and Mr. Trowbridge[1] of Groton there.  No body else being furnished (with Notes) it fell upon me to read Something for to Days Exercise, and tomorrow Lecture upon Mr. Loring.  My Exercise was upon Act. 1.7 to which I added my Discourse on 1 Thess. 5.4.

[1]Caleb Trowbridge (1692-1760), Harvard 1710, minister of Harvard, 1715-1760; SHG, 5:545-46.
