July 16, 1757

1757 July 16 (Saturday).  Mr. Hammond came here about his Wife’s Affair.  She takes it hard that I deny her coming to the Communion.  I am in much Difficulty, not thinking it my Duty to disclose my Suspicions; but a way was brought about in providence which I hope will help me.  It is this, Mr. Hammond is uncertain whether She belongs to Weston Church, or whether She was not dismissed to the Church in Lincoln.  Upon this and her not being Well so that it is uncertain whether she will come to Meeting to morrow, we conclude to wave it for this Time.  It is so showery, nothing can be done about Hay.  Natty Martyn brought a Letter from Leominster.
