23 June 1816 – Very Hot; Rev. E. Scovil preached from Solomon’s Songs, 2nd C 10th, 11th, 12th & 13th verses. “My beloved spake and said unto me, rise up my love, my fair one, and come away. For the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of the singing of the birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with tender grapes give a good smell. Arise my love, my fair one and come away.”
