April 20, 1777

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!
