January 31, 1768

1768 January 31 (Sunday).  Mr. Smith rode over to the Town, to preach in Mr. Sumners stead, who rides to Westborough to preach for me.  I preached for Mr. Morse, a. and p.m. on Phil. 2.1-5.  May God grant Success!  N.B. A messenger comes into Meeting: Deacon Brooks, one of the Delegates of the Church of Lincoln, was Sent for, to return home; his wife being at the Point of Death: and he left us at noon.  At Eve Mr. Smith returned to us — and, Mr. Bush having invited us, we went to his House, and with a Number of Delegates, we Supped there.  But returned to Mr. Morse’s, and lodged again there.
