1752 April 12 (Sunday). Read Deut. 5. Preach’d on John 1.41. P.M. administer’d the Lords Supper. Read 1 Cor. 15 and with alterations etc. deliver’d the first of the sermon on number 22. My Mind wrought tumultuously through the last Night from a deep Sense of my Negligence, Slothfulness and unfaithfulness — But I humbly make my Flight to the Glorious Redeemer, relying and depending on his Merits and Righteousness for Pardon and Acceptance with God. N.B. Deacon Newton sick of the Throat Distemper. I call’d Brother Tainter to officiate in his Room, which he did. At Eve I visited the Deacon and found him very ill.
