August 24, 1771

1771 August 24 (Saturday).  Deacon Wood here to apprize Mrs. Eunice Rice’s uneasiness that I don’t read her Confession to the Church.  He shews me a letter which She has Sent to Deacon Bond and himself — and to be communicated to Brother Daniel Forbes — and others as they Should see Cause — desiring them to come to me to perswade me to do it, where as She refrains using proper means her Self — does not visit Me, nor take any pains to satisfie Me of her Penitence.
