September 16, 1779

1779 September 16 (Thursday).  The Day was mainly spent in Retirement — See Natal., but just at eve came to my Sorrow, Mr. Adams and with him Lieut. Levi Warrin, who ask (and with some Reluctance) I gave a Copy of Messrs. Belknap and Forbes’ Request to me to send to Mr. A. to forbear coming to the Communion last Lord’s Day.  Messrs. Reed of Middleborough and Turner of same Town, going to the Ordination of Mr. Reed’s son at Warwick, came and lodged here.  Mr. Jacob Broaders was married to young Katharine Fessenden.[1]  N.B. The above named ministers prayed before and after the Covenant.
