February 24, 1765

1765 February 24 (Sunday).  Read Eccl. 2.  Preached on Mat. 17.22-27.  Mr. Cushing, Mrs. Maynard and Mr. Jacob Garfields wife, dined here.  P.M. read Mark 6 to v. 29.  As I thought it best to deliver my whole preparation in the forenoon, and could not prepare another sermon, I repeated on Rom. 5.15.18.  Am informed that Mr. Ebenezer Brigham expired yesterday p.m.  N.B. Read at Eve another small Portion of Mr. Bolton.
