July 22, 1767

1767 July 22 (Wednesday).  I Sent to Mr. Sumner to preach my Lecture yet by reason of the Funeral of Mr. John Brigham of Shrewsbuy to Day, I did not much expect him.  Have therefore spoke of it to Mr. Wyeth — but he delays coming to me this morning — and till after Dinner.  But he comes at length — preaches on Luk. 23.43.  After meeting he leaves us, to return homeward.  N.B. He told me he heard Rev. Mr. Nat. Rogers of Ipswich Speak of Mr. Cleaveland, as having taken in divers of the members of his (Mr. Rogers’s Church) into their (the Separate-Chebacco) Church and that he (Mr. R.) was much offended with him therefor.  N.B. Mr. Sumner kindly came to preach and attended the worship, though he came after we were gone to meeting.  This Evening I delivered two Jo’s or 36£ old Tenor to Mr. Joseph Rice of Grafton (which I received with another 18£ piece, from Capt. Maynard) which he is to deliver to my Brother Samuel at Boston.  And I delivered my Watch to Mr. Moses Haden of Grafton to be carryed to Mr. John Rogers of Newtown to be mended.
