April 7, 1776

1776 April 7 (Sunday).  A.M. Repeated (with proper Variations according to the Present times) the latter part of Sermons on Ps. 145.8, but this Exercise was introduced by reading Nahum 1.3.  O that God would please to grant His Grace to us all, that His Goodness might so affect as to lead us to Repentance and that His Longsuffering might prove salvation to us!  P.M. preached on Justification by Faith alone, and not by Works, carrying on the Subject began from Rom. 3.28, but the Text of the Exercise was Eph. 2.8, former part.  Our Cousen Maynard dined with us.
