July 8, 1776

1776 July 8 (Monday).  I did so; Mr. Joseph Willard of Mendon prayed before it, and I after it.  My Text was Joh. 18.11.  N.B. Dined at Mr. Grosvenors, and was there after Exercises, as was Mr. Plumb a Young Preacher.  I called at Mr. Hutchinsons who was not at home, and at Capt. Phillips’s.  I returned home at Evening safely.  D.G.  O that I might my Self have  Grace to improve the Word and Providences of God which are so affecting!
