June 15, 1774

1774 June 15 (Wednesday).  Rode to Southborough, dined at Mr. Stones.  Preached his Lecture on 1 Chron. 15.13, latter part.  And read as a parallell Text 1 Cor. 11.29, which was largely explained and the Explanation confirmed.  There were but very few at meeting by Reason of heavy Rain, with Thunder and Lightning at the very time of Assembling.  The Lord bless the word to those few of us who could attend! The Rain continuing, I tarryed all night. Mr. Stone gave me (from Mr. Gordon of Roxbury) Mr. Joseph Allaines Serious Treatise on Conversion.  A New Edition under a new Title, viz. “An Admonition to unconverted Sinners.”
