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.
