February 14, 1781

1781 February 14 (Wednesday).  Mr. P. Whitney and wife made us a Visit in their Sleigh.  Dined.  Tea.  Breck returned from Newtown, from Mr. Josiah Fullers: and Sophy from Ashburnham — informs that Alexander is not well: is Rheumatic.  She brings me a Letter from Mr. Cushing who informs me of the Dismission and silencing of Mr. Cummings of Marlborough in New Hampshire for Immorality.  A sorrowful Providence!  He sends me also a Book containing 14 Sermons by Mr. Thomas Haweis on Evangelical Principles and Practices.
