1751 March 5 (Tuesday). The Storm yet more tedious, Snowing, blowing and Cold, all Day and Night. I was chiefly engag’d in reading Expositors and other writers on my design’d Text and Subject — a faithfull minister. Read especially Davenant on the Colossians. I bless God my own Soul not altogether unaffected! Find I have great Reason for Deep Humilliation for my unqualifydness and great unfaithfullness — the Lord pardon me, through the Great Saviour! N.B. I had appointed a Catechizing at the Meeting House to Day, but the Storm prevented going out.
John Davenant, Expositio Epistolae D. Pauli and Colossenses (Cantab., 1627). Two other Latin editions were published in 1630 and 1639.
