October 20, 1773

1773 October 20 (Wednesday).  Mr. Joseph Pope is this Day to be ordained, at Spencer.  May he and the people he is to be set over, and those Servants of God that carry on the Solemnity, have much of the divine Presence with them!  And I wish they may have lasting peace and Joy!  May I ever remember the Solemn Charge which I have received!  May I be humbled under a  sense of my unfaithfulness and unprofitableness this long time that the Lord has continued me in the work; for which Patience of God I would bless His Name; and entreat Grace that may be sufficient for me the little Time I may be still endured.
