1752 April 20 (Monday). In the Garden again. Am reading Dr. Youngs Sermons volume 2 borrow’d of Mrs. Barrett of Hopkinton.
Edward Young (1643-1705) was a Fellow of Winchester College, Rector of Upham and Dean of Salisbury. The work mentioned here was probably Sermons on Several Occasions, 2 vols. (London, 1702, 1703). Another English edition appeared in 1706
