1772 March 8 (Sunday). Preached on Luk. 15.23, last clause and v. 24. P.M. went on with the repetition of Sermon on Ps. 119.57, former part. May the Lord be my portion, and may I partake of the Joy of those who though dead are alive again etc.! Cousen Nanny Brigham dined here. Appointed the Communion. N.B. Robert Ashbo (who with others of his, was at Meeting a. and p.m.) came here after Exercises, to talk with me about Gods being our Lot and Portion. This is very agreeable to me.
