August 30, 1778

1778 August 30 (Sunday).  Preached on Mat. 16.26 a. p.m. (at Mendon) which may God graciously Succeed!  We have been very much alarmed with bad news from Rhode Island; but at Evening a more favorable Account.  At noon I was kindly entertained by Mrs. Wilder (Mr. Caleb’s Wife).  Her Husband is at the Eastward.  After Meeting went (by Invitation) to Judge Dorr’s — where the very aged Squire Tyler came to make me a Visit.  He was 91 last February and is Still alert.  He accompanyed me to Mr. Willards, where I lodged.
