1751 May 30 (Thursday). At the Convention Sermon; preach’d by Mr. Wigglesworth of Ipswich on 2 Cor. 11.2, and the Collection for the Support of the Gospel Ministry which I fear was Small. Din’d at Mr. Eliots. N.B. Mr. Kneeland acquaints me with a present from Scotland to Mr. Edwards of Northampton which will turn to be nigh 1000£ value old Tenor. He likewise tells me he will undertake to print the Collection of Poems which I have propos’d to him — and this (if I understood him) whether there be any more subscribers or not. Supp’d at Cousen Olivers with some Number besides — Mrs..[?] Davenport. He lodg’d at Brother Samuels.
The Reverend Andrew Eliot of the New North Church.
Samuel Kneeland, the printer and bookseller of Boston.
