1754 April 11 (Thursday). Rode to Mr. Daniel Mathis’s to a Fast kept there on Account of his Sciatica and Discouragements. Mr. Stone was there, but no Minister besides. I preach’d a.m. on Ps. 51.11, and pray’d both before and after Sermons. Left Mr. Stone to carry on the remaining Exercises: being oblig’d myself to hasten to my own Catechetical Exercises to Young Men. About 24 persons attended: I deliver’d Number 5 which is from page 17 to 22.
Nathan Stone of Southborough.
