1779 September 26 (Sunday). Read Ps. 44. Took the first verse for my Text, though I go on with my subject on Isa. 46.3-4. P.M. on Isa. 47.1-2, had some Regard to the Death of Rev. Mr. Whitney of Petersham, which may God Sanctifie to us! After Exercises it rained plentifully. Cousen Saml. (who has lately been graduated at Dartmouth Col.) here at eve and lodges here. In the Evening Exercise of the Family, I read A Kempis.
