October 4, 1782

1782 October 4 (Friday).  Mr. Forbes preached an excellent Sermon at his Cousen Elisha’s on Luk. 10.20, latter part — “but rather rejoice, because your names are written in Heaven.”  It was very Seasonable and well accepted by a considerable Auditory.  I pray God to add His Special Blessing thereon!  N.B. Mr. Elisha gave an handsome Entertainment and gave generous Invitation to his Relations and Friends, and with his Chaise kindly waited upon Mrs. P________ and me to the Dinner, and came home with us in the Same manner at Even.
