September 14, 1766

1766 September 14 (Sunday).  Read Isa. 36 and preached a. and p.m. on 2 Thess. 3.1.  P.M. read Joh. 6 from v. 35.  Besides my Daughter in Law and my grand Daughter, Miss Peggy Fessenden dined here.  My Discourses to Day were Somewhat animated, and I spoke Plainly.  When I was Speaking of the Impediment to the word arising from pastoral Examinations I said I could appeal to those who had been with me upon that Occasion, that I had treated them tenderly and affectionately, Ensign Jeduthun Fay went out.  N.B. Mr. Hutchinson returning from Southborough, and Mr. Stone (who called here on Saturday last in his Way up) returning from Grafton, were here and Supp’d with us.  The latter lodged here.
