1773 August 4 (Wednesday). My Horse being gone, had Neighbour Newtons to go to Lecture at Shrewsbury. Dined at Mr. Sumners. Mr. Gleason and his Wife there — and Mr. Whitney of Northborough. Mr. Gleason preached on 1 Cor. 11.29. I returned at Evening. Our Hearts tremble for the Ark of the Lord — for the dark Aspects at Bolton! O that God would graciously appear and turn the Hearts of the Partys to Himself and one another! That He would be pleased to guide and direct both the Councils, which I suppose are now engaged in Controversie, and that the issue may be holy Peace! John is not well, yet goes about.
