1772 March 15 (Sunday). Preached at Sudbury, West Side, on the Sorrowful Occasion of the Death of F. Loring, on John 12.35 a. and p.m., in which I gave some Account of Mr. Loring from his Diary, which he had appointed to be at my and Mr. Stone’s Disposal. N.B. My son William came to Meeting and heard me; he being but about 4 Miles off. He came on Racketts, across meadows etc. which made it much nigher. In the Evening I employed my Self as much time as I could, in Searching into the Diary, the Adversaria etc.
