December 25, 1774

1774 December 25 (Sunday).  A.M. on Ps. 89.47. P.M. on Joh. 5.40.  Cousen Davis, and Miss Molly Badcock dined here.  N.B. at noon I spoke with Mr. Daniel Forbes about the Church Meeting — and the difficulty attending my conferring with the Church to day, by reason of the weather (it being rainy etc.).  He answered me that there was no hurry. I replyed, that then the Signers could not blame me for still deferring it. He answered again, “O, no.”  I asked him to come to see me. He said he would.  Mrs. Sarah Forbush grows worse.
