1776 October 13 (Sunday). I preached a.m. on Isa. 28, expounding and glossing on the whole, as heretofore. P.M. on Eccl. 12.7 on occasion of the Death of Mr. Phinehas Hardy: and on this morning dyed Mr. Stockwells little son Anson, nigh 5 years old. May a gracious God over look what has been amiss and Succeed His own Work!
