September 29, 1751

1751 September 29 (Sunday).  My Wife through Gods Goodness, So happy as to go to Meeting again — we offer public thanks.  Read Numb. 16 from 15 to 35, and for the forenoon Exercise, gave Exposition.  P.M. Read Rom. 7, and preach’d on 1 Sam. 2.1.6, repeating Somewhat Considerable of Sermon on that Text, but now adding in many places; especially in the Close.  But it was a Subject so Suitable (Hannah with her Samuel now come to the House of God) that (as I conceiv’d) I could not resist it.  May God pardon what is amiss and graciously accept of me and mine.
