December 11, 1757

1757 December 11 (Sunday).  Read 1 Chron. 20.  Preached a. and p.m. repeating Sermon on Eccl. V.1.  Read p.m. Luk. 11.  N.B. Brother Harrington of Waterton dined here.  P.M. Mr. Benjamin Tainter, tything man, as soon as the Blessing was given, Spoke aloud to two Young Women for laughing etc. in the Time of divine service.  They were Abigail Whipple and Lydia, Daughter of James, Maynard.  Tis matter of great Grief that persons from whom I ought to hope So well, Should behave so ill!
