1767 November 22 (Sunday). So great a Storm I omitted Reading publickly: Fewer Old, but more of young people attended, than I expected. A.M. preached on Eccl. XII.1, latter part. P.M. went on with the Effects of Effectual Calling from 2 Pet. 1.3, latter part with a new Introduction etc. but the main of the Exercise was Repetition from sermon on Rom. 8.28 from p. 40 to 46 or 7. Propounded Eli Whitney and his wife, and read the proclamation for Thanksgiving, but by reason of the fewness of the people at meeting this stormy Day, I put off the Contribution for Mrs. Bellows until next Lords Day.
