August 30, 1764

1764 August 30 (Thursday).  We went to Mr. Bridge’s and dined there.  Besides Mr. Bridge, there were Rev. Messrs. Stone, Smith, Lock, Eli[ab?] Stone, and Mr. Bridge of Sudbury.  When we went to Meeting I was obliged to pray as well as Preach, though there were so many ministers present.  It was both a Sacramental and a singing Lecture.  Therefore I preached on Ps. 57.12.  After the Exercise, the Singers and many others tarried; and Some Number of Tunes were sung with eminent skill.  Mr. William Brown waits upon us to his House.  Alexander well and contented.  We supped and lodged there.
