December 18, 1768

1768 December 18 (Sunday).  Omitted Reading, this Short, cold Stormy Day.  Preached on Eccl. 3.14.  On Occasion of Several Sorrowfull Deaths of late, viz. Mr. Curtis’s and Dr. Young’s last Tuesday Night.  This latter (Dr. Joseph Young of Hopkinton) was killed by an heavy Rider falling upon Him as he was creeping through a log Fence, in the Evening after the 13th.  May God grant His Blessing to accompany both His Word and Providence!  Master Jamison dined with us.
