June 19, 1782

1782 June 19 (Wednesday).  This is the Day of the Great Solemnity of the Instalment of Rev. Mr. Ebenezer Grosvenor at Harvard.  May God be among them!  I can’t be among them as I hop’d.  I rode home.  Billy, my Grandson rode with [me] to Col. Weeks; where we dined.  I call to See Mrs. Blackden at Mr. Jonathan Loring, who lies in a low Condition, and prayed with him.  At Mr. George Williams’s.  At Mr. Jonathan Bruce’s, to see Mrs. Beeman who is yet alive, but not able to converse: and at Coll. Brighams.
