June 26, 1774

1774 June 26 (Sunday).  Read Mic. 6 and made my Exposition of it very much by Assistance from Sermon on Mic. 6.2, though with many Omissions and Alterations.  P.M. Read Ps. 105. Preach on Isa. 63.9 and delivered the whole of my Preparations which I have Spent much Time upon; for it could not be divided.  I suppose I was Somewhat more than an Hour. After Sermon I gave the Church, as Such, an Account of what the Town had agreed to concerning a Fast next Thursday, on the Account of the public Distresses; and proposing it virtually though not directly to them, there was no Objection: therefore it was complyed with as I conceive.
