1726 December 26 (Monday). A.M. I read Lowths Directions for Reading the Scriptures. P.M. I read the Clergyman’s Vade mecum.
Probably the popular work Directions for the profitable reading of the Holy Scriptures by the English theologian, William Lowth, D.D. (1660-1732). The work first appeared in a London edition of 1708. Numerous other editions followed.
