March 1, 1752

1752 March 1 (Sunday).  We begin not only with a Sabbath but a Sacrament day.  I read the last chapter of Numbers.  Preached on John 1.41, a. and p.m.  It was a rainy day and but few women at communion.  P.M. read 1 Cor. 10.  Oh that God would please to bless these happy seasons to all our Souls — to my own in particular!  Deacon Forbush[1] and Mr. Thomas Kendal[2] dined with us.  Deacon Burnap[3] of Hopkinton with us, Mr. Barrett[4] not well.
