June 3, 1772

1772 June 3 (Wednesday).  Mr. Bradshaw has Slept well, and has a moderate Day.  D.G.  I rode to Southborough and dined there.  Rev. Mr. Perry of Windsor there also, but did not tarry to dinner.  I went with full purpose to preach Mr. Stone’s Lecture and did pray in public.  But was so unhappy as inadvertently to leave my Note Case at home, and did not conceive I was called to attempt to preach without Notes.  Mr. Stone preached himself from Mat. 9.13, “For I am not come to call the Righteous” etc.
