February 6, 1746

1746 February 6 (Thursday).  I preach’d at the Private Meeting at Lieutenant Tainters on Mat. 18.18.19.  My wife rode with me. We din’d there. O that the Lord Jesus Christ might meet with us in all our Meetings!  We were inform’d that Yesterday the Quarter sessions at Worcester abated the Rates of the Second Precinct to the Rate of £82 10 shillings to me from June 5 to October 20, 1744, and they gave Judgment also that the precincts proceedings had been invalid from the Beginning.
