October 10, 1745

1745 October 10 (Thursday).  In the Morning I rode up to Shrewsbury Fast, which was on occasion of the Mortal Sickness among them (the Fever and Flux).  Mr. Hall was to have been there but he came not.  My part was to perform the forenoon service since I could not be there in the afternoon.  I preach’d on 1 Pet. 5.6.  At noon I took leave, Mr. Morse being with Mr. Cushing.  I hasted to Mr. Francis Whipples in Westborough and preach’d at the Private Meeting there on Isa. 66.2.
