1748 September 18 (Sunday). I chose to go on with the Parental Duty from Prov. 22.6, as I deliver’d it before from Eph. 6.4, a. and p.m. reserving what I had writ upon Mat. 25.46 to another Time. N.B. We this Day began the public Reading of Scriptures. A.M. after Prayer, before singing I read the first Chapter of Genesis and p.m. the first Chapter of Matthew.
