July 7, 1776

1776 July 7 (Sunday).  I preached a.m. on Joh. III.36, drawing my Discourses of Faith to a Close, and directing Some serious Things to the Newly ‘listed Soldiers.  P.M. I thought it best to deliver again Some parts of Discourse on Ps. 78, v. 3.6.7.  Baptized 7 Children.  Mr. Joseph Harrington acquaints me his Sister Stow is dead and it is requested by his Brother in Law, that I would go to the Funeral and considering the Great Affliction of the Family, another Child lying sick, and that there has been no preaching, one sabbath after another, they desire that I would Preach at the House of Mourning.
