June 6, 1778

1778 June 6 (Saturday).  I rode to Mr. Nathan Goddards (in compliance with Mr. Maccartys Request) to let him know I was going to Worcester.  Dined at Mr. Sumners.  Proceeded to Visit the Prisoners.  James Buchannan, William Brooks, Ezra Ross, and Bathsheba Spooner.  I conversed with the Men in their Apartment and the Woman in hers.  The former were very Penitent, and think they have each of them experienced the Special Grace of God.  But the Woman, though she appeared to be Sober and was employed in reading the Scriptures, yet I could not find that She had a due sense of her Condition.  She did not think that her Condemnation was just.  She acquainted me with her having [illegible] Letter from Rev. and aged Mr. Carpenter.  [Illegible] with me into the Mens Room [illegible] they all desired me to pray with and for [illegible] I would remember their [illegible] [Parents?] [illegible] Speaking of his Hope towards God etc., [illegible] that nigh a fortnight agoe, on the [Saturday?] Night, and Sabbath morning he had wonderful Manifestations of the Grace of God.  It was the Day of his Baptism.  I repaired to Mr. Maccartys, and lodged there.
