1728 July 30 (Tuesday). Having got in my Hay, Rice, Barley, and Wheat, I dismiss’d Thomas Kendal for a while. Now we are intirely alone having no Servant nor any one in the House. Our Loneliness gives Scope for Thought. God Sanctifie our solitude, and help us to improve in acquaintance with Himself. There was much Lighting in the North almost the whole Evening.
