Morning cloudy but it cleared away towards night with a sharp North-Westerly Wind. I attended Divine Service all day and heard Mr. Whitney without the attention which I think is due to him. I shall set about a reform when I get back to town. Mr. Degrand came out and gave us the Newspapers containing very flattering Accounts of the Election from Pennsylvania. There is now a prospect that the Country may be redeemed.

Afternoon read a good Sermon of Mr. John Balguy upon the subject of Differences of Opinion leading to Discord. His discourses are short and plain, but well conceived and full of strong, downright sense. Evening, Josiah Quincy spent an hour. I afterwards read Lingard. But on the whole I have not an adequate account to give of my day.
