October 28, 1748

1748 October 28 (Friday).  And Next Morning but without Effect though we sat upon it p.m. also; and till toward Night.  The Council appointed a Committee to hear it, viz. Mr. Campbell and myself, with Colonel Larnard, Mr. Brown of Leicester, and Esquire Baker, and then we adjourn’d without Day.  It was so late and Misty that Mr. Buckminster and others from Time to Time earnestly requesting it, I stay’d; and Mr. Williams and I visited Mr. Frink in the Evening.  I would not utterly forget the important Transactions of this Day 24 Years ago when I was solemnly Ordain’d.  The Lord Grant me forgiveness of my many Defects; and make me Wise and Thankful!
