October 7, 1781

1781 October 7 (Sunday).  Have had so many avocations this week past, that I could not finish what I endeavoured to prepare for one part of this day.  I therefore was obliged to preach a.m. on Rom. 13.11 and p.m. on v. 12.  May God grant His special Blessing on my poor Efforts!  At Eve Mr. Brigham read Mr. Flavells fountain opened and prayed.
