August 20, 1782

1782 August 20 (Tuesday).  I received no Answer from Ensign Fay’s.  I therefore rode up there about that time: But Ensign said that had sent to Grafton.  I therefore rode over to Northborough to the Association at Mr. Whitney’s where were Messrs. Biglow, Newell, and there was also Mr. Puffer.  The Moderatorship came on me.  Mr. Whitney prayed — but it was conceived there were Difficultys enough to take up our time, and therefore there was no Concio.  Next Meeting appointed to be 3d Tuesday in September.  My Son Ebenezer went over also and dined with us; he accompanyed me home.  N.B. A Fast at Shrewsbury.  Mr. Grosvenor preached a.m. on Isa. 26.4.  Rev. Dr. Hall p.m. on Isa. 45.22.
