June 4, 1757

1757 June 4 (Saturday).  The Boys carry Ashes.  The Dryness of the Earth increases.  N.B. Mr. Eliezer Rice comes here p.m. and complains of Brother Samuel Fay junior and tells he has taken the previous Steps etc.  But there being no Opportunity now to call the Church together before the Communion (tomorrow being appointed to be sacrament Day) I wrote to Mr. Fay (which Rice promised to send to him right away; and Rice gave me under his Hand <to go on with> that if he did not Support his Complaint he would make Mr. Fay proper Satisfaction) to Advise him to suspend coming to the Communion for the present.  N.B. My Daughter Lucy not well.
