March 7, 1776

1776 March 7 (Thursday).  Public Fast.  I preached a.m. on Rev. XIV.6.7.  P.M. used 6 pages of Sermon on Jer. 12.3 and some Hints of Application in loose papers, and divers Extemporaneous Addresses.  After the Blessing we made a Collection for Mr. Malachi Nichols of Munson, and gathered £ lawful money for him: which was brought here by the Deacons, and I took it under my Care.  May God graciously hear Our Prayers, bless the word delivered, and accept our Alms!
