1770 March 22 (Thursday). Sir Coffin (Peter of Cape Ann) here, going to Brookfield. I rode to the Fast at Marlborough, on account of Mr. Smiths illness. Mr. Josiah Bridge opened the Solemnity with Pertinent and fervent prayer. Mr. Stone preached a very excellent Sermon Suitable for the Solemn Occasion, on Isa. 33.24. P.M. Mr. Goss prayed: I preached on Phil. 2.27. Which may God accept and Succeed! Mr. Smith notwithstanding his Grievous Distresses was at Meeting with us a. and p.m. At Eve I returned home, though it snowed all the Way. Squire Whipple accompanyed me. We called in an Neighbour Andrews to warm us: and they treated us with great Civility.
