February 11, 1770

1770 February 11 (Sunday).  Preached a. and p.m. on Rev. 2.21.  For there were some special Reasons why I did not deliver what I had prepared, and which I weighed and considered as well as I could.  But besides, I could not compleat the forenoon preparation without being somewhat late; though pages enough were writ, yet the Exercise was not finished.  This Set of Sermons were very Suitable to the Subject which I had been upon, Repentance, and Seasonable, as the Throat Distemper has broke out among us again.  At Evening Esq. Jedidiah Marcy of Dudley was here (upon Alexanders Invitation) and Supped here.
