1769 January 15 (Sunday). Had a Sad Night of deep Reflections but was more comfortable in the Morning. Preached a.m. on Eph. 4.30. The composing of which had took up my Time, So that I prepared no more, but went on with the Repetition of Sermon on 1 Joh. 1.3, viz. from p. 17 to 25. Mrs. Maynard dined with us. At Eve after our Family Exercise we read Dr. Youngs Estimate of human Life.
