July 20, 1780

1780 July 20 (Thursday).  A Day of humiliation, FASTING and Prayer, on account of the uncommon Distress.  Preached a.m. on 1 Kings 20.28 last clause and though I wrote much, and was long in the Exercise, yet could not be so particular in Application as I designed, and very much desired.  P.M. I delivered some parts of Discourse on Eccl. 8.11 and added Applications, Reproofs, Exhortations and Cautions.  When we returned, found my Grandson Isaac Baldwin from Cambridge here, going home.  He lodged here with us.
