Was obliged to write a great deal of the Application there. I preached on 1 Joh. 2.18. N.B. after Sermon Mr. Mellen had many Things to Say which we endeavoured to Answer. My Wife rode to Boston to Day, and Lt. Tainter waited on her. My son went with his Team to Brookfield to work on the Gilbert place. I returned home. My Tabernacle in peace. D.G. Little Sophy weaning, and takes it tolerably.
