March 1, 1779

1779 March 1 (Monday).  The Town met.  They sent two to ask me to go and pray with them.  I complied, and at their Request, I read the King of Britain’s Speech to his Parliament, November last.  Mr. Daniel Forbes was here to ask me to preach at his House tomorrow.  My son Ebenezer returned from Watertown, Boston etc.  He brings a letter from Mr. Forbes of Gloucester, concerning the Sickness of his son-in-law, Charles Saunders of about 8 etc. etc.  The choristers Chamberlain and Whitney, say they want to be dismissed and desire there may be a new choir.  Ebenezer lodges here.  N.B. Moses Warren was released from serving me this season.
