May 8, 1774

1774 May 8 (Sunday).  Read Jonah 4.  I was obliged to use for the forenoon Exercise, chiefly Sermons 1 and 2 on Rev. 20.12, but preached from 2 Cor. 3.10.  P.M. (having read Ps. 96) repeated with some alterations Sermon 3 on Rev. 20.22, that sentence, “the Books were opened.”  N.B. Mr. Samuel Barrett of Hopkinton and his Wife, dined here.  Mr. Fitch being absent, and gone to Connecticut.
