March 26, 1752

1752 March 26 (Thursday).  Publick Fast on occasion both of the Small Pox and the Season.  I preach’d a.m. on 2 Sam. 24.14.  In my preparations I Spent my Time upon the forenoon sermon.  P.M. preach’d on Zech. 12.10, to page 7, and made Some Additions according to the Business of the Day.  A rainy Day, yet considerable many People out: I wish it might be to Some good Purpose.  N.B. Not only Mr. Seth Rice went out of Meeting from the forenoon sermon, but Mr. Robert Bradish also.  N.B. My Daughter Lucy has stay’d at home from Public Worship several Days — she has now an ague in her Face, and has been pritty much troubl’d with it.
