March 27, 1767

1767 March 27 (Friday).  Mr. Brewer comes for me to go to Mr. Temple’s.  They desire baptism for their Child.  A Number of people were gathered.  I proposed it to them.  They consented and advised to it.  We prayed but the Child Expired.  The Doctor (Ball) declaring it to be dead, I desisted from Baptizing, but we prayed again.  And having offered a few words in Exhortation I returned home.
