May 31, 1778

1778 May 31 (Sunday).  My Cares and Avocations through the Week prevented my making due preparations so that I preached again on Act. 4.12 a. and p.m. to p. 20.  Mrs. Maynard, Winslow Brigham, and the Bryants dined here.  I read a long Address of Congress to the people, and we have Contribution for Deacon Fay of Southborough.  A Letter from Mr. Moore of May 25.  He has a son William born Apr. 27.
