October 25, 1748

1748 October 25 (Tuesday).  The Council was form’d.  I was their unwritten Moderator.  Mr. Hall of Sutton was Clerk.  We went to the Meeting House a.m.  I opened the Meeting with prayer.  We read the Paper of Grounds of uneasiness which Samuel Stone had exhibited to the Church some time ago.  Great Debate whether that Paper should be the beginning of our Business in Hearing.  Mr. Buckminster chiefly took up the Time.  Mr. Williams[1] of Weston pray’d when we broke up this session at Night.
