1752 October 19 (Thursday). I preach’d the Lecture. I make a Practice of delivering Sermons on these Occasions, which I have heretofore deliver’d for I cannot, under my Encumbrances and Difficultys, prepare fully, even so much as for the Sabbaths. What I deliver’d to Day was on Hos. 6.6. Neither my Son Ebenezer nor Thomas were at Meeting; and but few others.
