September 22, 1756

1756 September 22 (Wednesday).  I wrote to Mr. Martyn last Monday to come and preach my Lecture for me, and I looked [illegible] for him and his wife but neither of them came.  I was obliged to preach my self.  Text was Mat. 12.20.  After Lecture the Deacons came to [my Hou?]se, and we counted the Money collected last Lords Day for Mr. Jotham Death of Poquaog, and it appeared to be £12.13.4 old Tenor.  Billy gathered the rest of the Corn at the Island.
