August 26, 1764

1764 August 26 (Sunday).  Mrs. Brigham with us.  I read publickly Prov. XVII.  Preached on Ps. 116.14.  Administered the Lords Supper.  P.M. read Mat. 24 from v. 29 to the End: and delivered what I had been Some time preparing, on Mat. 16.19.  It took me more than an Hour, and with Small Addition would have sufficed for two Sermons; but it was best to deliver it together at Once.  May God grant Success!  Baptized Eight Children, viz. 6 of Mr. Adonijah Rice’s, one of Mr. Ebenezer Forbush’s, and one of Mr. Adam Rice’s.  Mrs. Brigham and her sister Maynard, as well as Master Cushing, dined here.  At Eve instead of Repetition read part of Mr. Doolittle on 1 Joh. 5.13.  In the Morning Exercise at Cripple Gate.
