July 2, 1775

1775 July 2 (Sunday).  Preached a.m. on Rev. 2.3.  Administered the Lords Supper.  Ripley and Daughter Forbes were at the Communion.  We had Capt. Jonas Brigham, Mr. Batheric, and Mr. Tainter there to day, though they have been absent twice before.  I have let them alone, conceiving that they were (though unreasonably) out of Frame, which I have endeavoured to sweeten another way than by formal Dealing with them.  Mrs. Maynard dined here.  P.M. repeated a Sermon on Isa. 55.2, last Clause, with various alterations suiting it to the present unhappy Circumstances.  Read another Paper which was a Copy, from our Provincial Congress, of what was Sent from the Congress at Philadelphia, Signed John Hancock President, Recommending a Fast through out all the Colonies, on July 20th.  May God Himself who is infinite Wisdom, be graciously pleased to prepare us for all that He Shall See meet to call us to!  Hannah out of Health.
