April 10, 1739

1739 April 10 (Tuesday).  I rode to Sudbury, in Company from Captain Williams of Marlborough with Mr. Cushing.  Mr. Nathan Stone and Mr. Seccomb at Mr. Lorings.  My Concio was on 2 Cor. 2.15.16.  The Occasion of this Discourse on this Text was the ill Conduct of divers Ministers, but particularly of Mr. Seccomb of Harvard.  N.B. Seven Towns in that Neighbourhood had had ministers guilty of Scandalous offences.
