1779 September 8 (Wednesday). I received a note from Mr. Stone that he could not preach my Lecture. The Town of Southborough meet today to consider his Salary. I preached my Self. The Text was Romans 15.13. May God bless my Endeavors! Alexander went to Marlborough but returned and lodged here. Squire Whipple came in after Lecture, gives but an indifferent Account of the State of Things in New Braintrey. They go on under Mr. Foster, as if all was right.
