June 29, 1774

1774 June 29 (Wednesday).  I rode to Southborough, it being Fast-Day there on account of the public Distresses.  Mr. Smith Prayed at the Beginning.  I preached on Isa. 4.5.  P.M. Mr. Stone prayed and Mr. Matthew Bridge preached on Eccl. 7.13, principally the first Words “Consider the Work of God.”  May it please God graciously to hear our fervent Supplications, Pardon our Sins, and teach us due Obedience to His Word, Especially Such a Day as this!  Returned at Eve.
