October 10, 1756

1756 October 10 (Sunday).  Although the People are, as I apprehend, too backward in moving for a Fast, yet I thought it my Duty to stop the Church at noon, and propose it to them.  They complyed by a pritty general Vote.  The Day to be next Thursday (God willing) — and p.m. I recommended it to the Congregation and requested them to join with us therein.  A.M. I preached on Heb. X.31.  P.M. repeated Sermon 1 Hos. 6.1.  After Meeting attended the Funeral of Mr. Ebenezer Forbush’s son Ebenezer which dy’d the night before last.  N.B. There were 18 Notes and Requests for Prayers etc.
