August 18, 1782

1782 August 18 (Sunday).  A very dry Day.  We cry to Heaven for Relief.  A.M. I go on with the Discourse on Ps. 110.3, latter part, to Young People chiefly.  May God grant Success!  P.M. preached on Prov. 1.23 (which I lately composed) and was Suitable to follow the forenoon Exercise: and may divine Grace accompany it!  N.B. Daniel Adams junior deliver’d me a Letter from his Father.  Mr. Peter Thatchers Wife, of Hopkinton dined here.  At Eve repeated some parts of the preceeding sermon.
