August 30, 1771

1771 August 30 (Friday).  Mr. Mellen and his Wife, in their return to Chauxit, called here.  A little before Sunsetting came Mrs. Eunice Rice to see me.  We Conversed about her Confession.  She consents to some alteration.  I consent to propound her in a little Time: but not next Sabbath, because I Shall not be at home.  At Parting She asks me to be favourable to her in my Prayers — meaning in Publick, when I come to her Case.  I told I Should use what Prudence and Faithfulness I could.
