1747 February 5 (Thursday). Bright and comfortable. I finish’d reading Mr. Lowth on the prophecys. At Eve I visited Mr. Baker again, at Captain Maynards, Mr. Jenison also being there. I pass’d along on Banks most commonly as high, and many Times above the Fences. Mr. Baker much recover’d.
William Lowth, D.D. (1661-1732), the distinguished English theologian, wrote a number of works on prophets and prophecies. These works appeared separately at first and then in several collected editions.
