June 9, 1744

1744 June 9 (Saturday).  Greatly disquieted with both the Actual Miscarriages and the Defects of the Council at Upton, and made some Remarks thereon.  Prepar’d what I could of my sermon for the Communion tomorrow — and O that my own Soul were suitably prepar’d there for!  Bekky[1] and Lucy[2] rode to Sutton.  N.B. Mr. James Bowman took the Care of a Letter from me to Mr. Weld of Upton.

[1]Rebecca Hicks, Parkman’s niece.

[2]Parkman’s daughter, who was 10 years old.
