August 28, 1759

1759 August 28 (Tuesday).  It proved very rainy.  I preached a Lecture to the same Congregation Preparatory to the Sacrament of the Lords Supper, which by Desire I last Lords Day appointed to be next.  Few were at Meeting.  I preached on Rom. 8.7.  N.B. Between the First Prayer and Singing Capt. Wolcott delivered me a Packet of Letters from Mr. Forb.  One of them was to his Church and Congregation which, before the Blessing I read to them.  Sundry Friends and Neighbours at Mr. Forb. after Meeting.  Capt. Thomas Gilbert and his Wife (who was widow Brown) Supped with us.
