1750 December 2 (Sunday). Dr. Gott being ill, his son Benjamin came and dress’d Billy’s Leg, which (through Gods Mercy) was effected without any more bleeding. In the Public Service (to which I went somewhat late, 7 minutes after Eleven when I got here) read Lev. 8th. Preach’d on Ps. 23.4, a. and p.m. Din’d at Esq. Bakers. N.B. Walk’d up, rode back. N.B. Astonishing Accounts of Mr. Benjamin Lawrence’s cruelty to his Boy Seem confirm’d. P.M. read John 20. Of both the Chapters which we read, I gave some brief Exposition.
