January 7, 1773

1773 January 7 (Thursday).  Sent the XVII, XVIII, XIX, XXth volumes of the World displayed back to Dr. Peter Green, the owner, by Elijah Brigham, who is going to keep School at Royalstown.  Spent a great part of the Day in reading in F. Lorings Diary: where I meet with what Serves deeply to abase and humble me for my Slothfulness and unprofitableness; my low experience in the divine Life, and that I have done So very little for God and for the Souls of Men; my own or others.  O that God would please throughly to awaken me, pardon, assist and quicken me!  And bless to me the reading over these MSS for these purposes!
