1749 November 12 (Sunday). Read Exod. 7 (though the former part of it was read by Mr. Hutchinson last Lords Day) and I gave a large Exposition which was the whole forenoon Exercise. Molly and I din’d at Deacon Newtons. P.M. Molly Woodwell’s thanks were offer’d in our Congregation — also prayers for no less than Six Children that are sick — 3 of Neighbour Beriah Rice’s — who have a malignant Fever. The rest have the Canker or Throat Distemper. Read Luke 10 from 21, and ended at 29, and gave the Exposition on Mat. 11.25.26. Somewhat drizly Weather then Shiny at Times.
