March 8, 1775

1775 March 8 (Wednesday).  I rode to Shrewsbury to Mr. Sumners Lecture to the Minute-Men under the Command of Capt. Job Cushing.  Dined at Mr. Sumners.  Mr. Peter Whitney there.  Mr. Sumners Text was Josh. 22.22.  The Lord God of Gods etc.  I prayed after sermon.  Returning home I called at Mr. Gleasons, where were Joseph Harrington, John Harrington, Joseph Bond, and a number more, who rode with me part of the way home.  N.B. Cousen Maynard having watched with the Sick woman, came here in the Morning to Breakfast — also dined here.
