July 12, 1747

1747 July 12 (Sunday).  Mr. Loring is left at Grafton to preach there to Day, though his own people were without; there being great Danger in Grafton that those two Canterbury Teachers would do much mischief.  I had made part of a sermon but could not finish it and therefore preach’d on Eph. 2.21.22. Mrs. Wheeler, of the north side din’d with us, she is in new sorrows by the Death of her son in law, Mr. Asaph Wilder, a likely man — his Death seems to be much lamented.
