1777 April 20 (Sunday). Rode over to Northborough. Preached a.m. on Amos 3.2 and p.m. on Amos [torn], latter part. Mr. Whitney preached here on Eccl. [8.11?]. N.B. [Mr. Solomon?] How was there, as he was the last time I preached there on the Sabbath. By reason of the Rain, I lodged at Mr. Whitneys. N.B. Mr. Batherick was taken ill in the Meeting House, and was led hither and laid him on the Bed. He was carried home in a Chaise. It is conceived to be an apoplectic Case. Lord, may I be ready!
