October 7, 1744

1744 October 7 (Sunday).  Mr. Wigglesworth a.m. on Jer. 8.20.  The Very Text and the Very Day on which I purpos’d myself to preach, that I might follow my summer sermons with the most solemn and awakening Warnings.  But the Lord in his Providence has order’d wisest and best, that these should be dispers’d [dispens’d?] by So Superiour a messenger.  P.M. on Mat. 11.12.  O that God would follow both sermons with an efficacious Blessing!
