1770 November 11 (Sunday). Read Ezek. 36 to v. 24. This Exposition of which was the forenoon Exercise. And upon this I Spent my time, so that p.m. (having read 1 Thess. 4) I gathered an Exercise from my Sermons on Ps. 46 with Expletives and variations (as well as with many Omissions) which adapted it to the present state of the Land, and of this place. For to render it profitable I considered this as the First Sabbath of the New Year with us of this Church. And may God help us so to improve it! In my Study at Eve read Magnalia — of the Troubles by the Ignes fatus.
