June 12, 1782

1782 June 12 (Wednesday).  I had appointed a Lecture to be this Day — wrote again to Mr. Grosvenor to preach it and Sent the Letter last Week, by (I Suppose) the Safe Hand of Deacon Batchellor — But was again disappointed; for he did not Come, nor have I any Lisp of Reason Why.  I preached my Self on Deut. which may God bless to the few who came!  After Meeting we had, to see us, Cousin Sally Brigham and her son in Law, Dr. John Gott from Wenham.  Also Mr. Belknap and his Wife, and Mr. Hazzletine.
