This was a day of humiliation and prayer at Mr. Carey's: on account of his sickness;
and to implore the assistance of providence in choosing a colleague to supply his
place. Mr. Webster of Salisbury preached in the forenoon; and performed very well.
But Dr. Tucker in the afternoon was very interesting and pathetic; in showing how
good and pleasant a thing it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. I attended
Mrs. Emery's funeral. Mr. Andrews made the prayer; and performed even better than
was expected. I passed part of the evening with Townsend; called at Mr. Tufts's, to
see Mrs. Shaw; but she was gone out. Mr. Shaw called to see me in the morning. They
came in town last night.
