September 9, 1781

1781 September 9 (Sunday).  I did not venture to read publickly.  Preached again on 1 Cor. 11.27.29 to the End of p. 37.  I administered the Lords Supper.  Mrs. Maynard dined.  P.M. preached on 2 Cor. 11.3 and finished that Discourse.  I Communicated the Bolton Letter, requesting Assistance in Ordaining Mr. Puffer.  It was Voted.  Mr. Batheric would not Vote, but made unhandsome Answer.  At Evening Mr. Brigham (at my request) read Mr. Henry on the Communion Chapter 12, and prayed.
