September 26, 1773

1773 September 26 (Sunday).  Have made some Preparations but could not compleat them, and therefore was obliged to have recourse to what I formerly delivered: and therein I had what with Some Alterations and Additions were exceeding pertinent to what was preached last Lord’s Day — and very fit to follow upon those Exercises.  Therefore having read Amos 7, and given some expository Glances upon it, I preached on Ps. XC, v. 12, “So teach us” etc.  And which may a gracious God be pleased to accompany with His Almighty Spirit!  Mr. Cornelius Waters dined with us.  P.M. Read Ps. 142 and 143 and went on with the Discourse on Ps. 90.12 to page 15.  I earnestly request I may my Self in a peculiar manner be savingly benefitted hereby, as well as my Hearers!  Nathan Townsend and his Wife were propounded.  I bless God the Hearts of Such a Number of my People have been of late so much wrought on.  May they all be truely Sincere and upright, and walk accordingly!  At Night came John from Providence — from Wrentham to Day, and not well.  I had sent him my Horse by Mr. Dupec.
