1756 April 21 (Wednesday). At the Public Lecture I prayed and Mr. Barret preached on Ps. 139.2, last v. P.M. Mr. Martyn prepared a Letter to be sent (in his own Name) to Deacon Mellens of Hopkinton in Answer to His to the Association. I rode to Mr. Jonathan Lorings and returned his Chandler’s History of Persecution which I have had, now a very long time; but he Said I was most welcome; and his Conduct was very friendly. In my returning Home I called at Mr. Richard Barns’s to See what could still be done for his Relief but he was not at Home.
