1757 November 6 (Sunday). Read 1 Chron. 15. I have prepared and finished a sermon on Prov. 31.30. But for several Reasons judged it better to defer delivering it. There were divers strangers; and Several of the people had been in a ruffle about my preaching the last Sermon to women; therefore I waved it for the present; and repeated part of Exposition of the 3d Commandment. Coll. Ward dined with us. So did Mr. Ezekiel Upham of Sturbridge. P.M. I read Luk. 8. Repeated 2 Expositions on Mat. 9.18-26, with Some Omissions and Alterations. Stayed the Church. See Church-Records. At Eve I read over and corrected my Discourse in the press on Ezek. 22.30.
