August 5, 1759

1759 August 5 (Sunday).  Brother Samuel and his Daughter keep Sabbath with us.  Read Ester 3 and Act. 26.  Preached on Tit. 3.2, to Speak evil of no man, repeating a. and p.m. from page 49 to 73 of sermons which I delivered some Years ago upon that Text, for as I could not finish my preparations upon the Subject I had designed, So it would not well do to deliver the part I had prepared without the remainder.  May God pardon my Deficiency, and bless my Poor Endeavours!  Mr. Fessenden dined here.  At Eve my Brother prayed in my Family Exercises.
