October 17, 1782

[1782 October 17 (Thursday).]  I attended the burying of Mr. Jonathan Batherick’s Infant: still-born.  [Mr.] Grosvenor sends yesterday to me a Letter by Mr. Langton that he can’t preach my Lecture.  I wrote to Mr. Fitch, and no Opportunity offering I Wrote again to Mr. Plum, who I hoped would.  [I] was obliged to prepare for my Lecture my Self, and p.m. preached on 1 Joh. 1.7, which was indeed to but a few.  A Letter from Mr. Plumb.  May God grant a Blessing to my poor Endeavours to the few that came!
