August 9, 1778

1778 August 9 (Sunday).  I preached a. and p.m. on Joel 3.13 with the Additions to p. 12.  Which may God graciously pleased to bless.  It was hot in the forenoon — but a storm arose p.m. and rained hard — thundered etc.  After Exercises came in to Mr. Sumners two Maiden Gentlewomen who were of Boston, viz. Miss Molly and Miss Suse Procter.  At Eve, after praying with the Family at Mr. Sumners, I went, by Invitation to Col. Cushing’s and was refreshed there — but lodged, agreeable to her Request, at his Mothers.  [Marginal notation: am informed that Mr. Sumner preached yesterday on Prov. 22.8 and 2 Cor. 2.16.]
