December 26, 1756

1756 December 26 (Sunday).  I preached a. and p.m. on Mat. 25.10.  May God accept, pardon and bless me and His people!  Mrs. Foster (wife of Capt. of Holliston) dined.  Brother Harrington at t’other House, but So beat out with his Journey (having been to Colchester, Norwich etc.) that he did not come to Meeting.  In the Evening was in Some peculiar manner affected with Eternal Things and was enabled through Gods rich Grace and Goodness to pour out my Soul in fervency before the Lord.  Was also in Some Measure humbled and melted under a Sense of Sin.  O that it might be continued and increased!  And that my dear Spouse and Children might experience the divine Almighty Spirit in his awakening and renewing Influences!
