1749 June 30 (Friday). Rode home Early. Brought over Mr. Henry Volume 1. Daniel has been hoeing and he has finish’d the Long piece, and the New Ground. Ebenezer does not come from Cambridge. Have heard it is Commencement there to Day. Hot and Dry Weather still. May the God of infinite Mercy and pity look upon his Weary Heritage!
A work of the English divine, Matthew Henry (1662-1714).
