1752 June 14 (Sunday). A.M. but feeble and weak. Yet went to meeting and perform’d the Services both a. and p.m. Nay, in the forenoon went through a double Service, for I not only deliver’d the sermon which I prepar’d for last Lords Day p.m., but added as much more; and it being upon Usury (Text Eph. 4.28) I exerted myself to the utmost, and deliver’d both at once. Read Deut. 13. P.M. I deliver’d a sermon on James 1 (which I made and deliver’d before I was ordain’d, viz. September 1724) but with many alterations as indeed were very necessary. N.B. read 2 Cor. 7. Was exceedingly worry’d and fatigu’d; with my forenoon sermon especially. Poor Night.
