December 4, 1774

1774 December 4 (Sunday).  Preached a.m. on Joh. V.40.  Which may God succeed! Master Jenison, and Maynard (of Framingham, an undergraduate), School-Master at Warrin-school House, dined here.  P.M. on Occasion of Lt. Bruce’s Death, I delivered an Exercise collected from divers parts of Sermon on James 5.9, but read therewith v. 8, as being Similar to it.  May I be duely affected with it, and prepare for the Coming of the Lord!
