1749 June 1 (Thursday). I attended the Convention. Was at the sermon. Mr. Barnard of Andover preach’d on 2 Cor. 4.1. The Contribution amounted to £ [blank]. I din’d at Mr. Cooper’s. P.M. I was so unavoidably taken up with my affairs that I could not go again to the Convention. My Horse was kept in the New North Meeting House Yard. Supp’d at Mr. Olivers. Lodg’d at Dr. Parkman’s. The Distresses by the Drought very great. I meet with no man, not the oldest, that has ever known Such a Drought so Early in the Year.
The Reverend John Barnard.
The Reverend Samuel Cooper (Harvard 1743), the minister of the Brattle Street Church in Boston.
