July 1, 1766

1766 July 1 (Tuesday).  In the Morning my Wife and I rode to Mr. Thomas Temple’s to the Funeral of their infant (which I baptized on Lords Day morning).  N.B. his Father was there and in his Return dined with us.  P.M. I preached at Mr. Jonah Warrins — his Wife Still under great Weakness by the Palsy; and long confined.  Text, Gal. 3.10.  Read also v. 13.  N.B. Mr. Cushing acquaints me with the most sorrowful Death of Deacon Williams of Brookline in Pomfret (Father of Mrs. Sumner of Shrewsbury) and that Mr. Sumner and his wife would be glad to see Me.  May God bless the awakening Word we have had!  And Sanctify His awful Providences!  N.B. Lt. John Wood of Hopkinton brought in, to Mr. Warrins, Bethiah Tyler, now Parmentor — and he wanted I should Speak to her — but I told him, and afterwards her, that I did not know what to say to her.  Caleb and Thomas Arnold sled stones.
