February 18, 1781

1781 February 18 (Sunday).  Preached a.m. on 2 Cor. 10.4 in Connexion with last sabbath.  Mrs. Maynard dined here.  P.M. repeated sermon on Luk. 12.5, former part, against Timorousness etc.  The Church stopped on Adams’s Letter — but neither was any Thing acted on, nor was there a Vote to drop it.  It was waved for the present.  The Complaint was of Mrs. Adams’s Delay to prosecute or bring her Cause to any Issue.  Whereupon I proposed to write to her: which was accepted.  Parted with the Blessing.  At Eve Mr. Brigham read again in Mr. Flavel on Rom. 1.18.  Breck and his Family (Josiah Brigham, Mindwell Batheric etc.) being here we sang also.  The Boys, Ben and William go up at Even and lodge at the Deacons.
