January 28, 1753

1753 January 28 (Sunday).  Read Deut. 21.  Preach’d on Tit. 3.2.  P.M. read Gal. 3.  Mrs. Hannah Pratt din’d here.  The Weather is become comfortable.  May God enable us to improve our advantages and Comforts to His Glory! Shunning carefully the Sins which his holy word has prohibited and humbling ourselves for what has been Chargeable upon us — as the Sin of Slandering and defaming has been very much So.  I had (to God be Glory!) some peculiar Sense of the Vanity of Life, and the Greatness of Things Eternal.  O that it might be preserv’d and increas’d!
