August 17, 1768

1768 August 17 (Wednesday).  I rose early and rode to Sudbury to the Association Fast.  Many attended of Ministers and Candidates, and of the people.  Mr. Loring prayed and Mr. Stone preached a.m. on Heb. 5.12, a very plain, pertinent, useful Sermon; which may God please to bless and prosper!  P.M. Mr. Smith prayed; I endeavoured to preached from Isa. 1.18.  The Lord pardon what was amiss!  Rode back with Mr. Smith, and lodged at his House.
