January 26, 1752

1752 January 26 (Sunday).  Mr. Jacob Cushing going yesterday to Southborough that to Day he might preach for Mr. Stone.  Mr. Stone was so kind as to come up this morning and preached all Day for me, two seasonable sermons on Isa. 27.9, and I had the Liberty to the House of the Lord again for which I would praise his Name with rejoicing.  Mr. Stone read a.m. Numb. 3.  I read p.m. 1 Cor. 6.  N.B. Judge Ward was at Meeting here.  He and widow Child[1] (besides the above mentioned) dined with us, who (with my own Family, all of them together) make a considerable Company.  Mr. Stone returned to Southborough this Evening — the Lord graciously reward him for his Labor of Love and bless his endeavors among us!  especially to me who am now immediately concerned in it.
