October 24, 1779

1779 October 24 (Sunday).  Preached once more on Isa. 46.4.  Nobody dined here.  I consulted the Deacons about having the Communion notwithstanding the Trouble with some Members, about Mr. Adams.  Preached on Prov. 27.1, occasioned by the late Disaster at Cambridge.  N.B. My son Elias was so far effected by that Providence, that he, by a note, desired Prayers in the Congregation that God would Sanctifie it to him.  I appointed the Communion and lecture.  At eve, Breck and Suse, her Brother Elijah etc. were with us and Sang.
