February 28, 1742

1742 February 28 (Sunday).  I was Still So infirm and the Weather So cold that I preached again in my own House.  Text Mat. 11.12 a. and p.m.  Mr. Winchester[1] dined here.  Some Number of the Members of the Church requested that Considering that it was so Extraordinary a Time of Gods Grace, the Church would observe a Day of Fasting and Humilliation.  I therefore laid it before the Brethren present and they universally came into it.  N.B. not being able to visit Mr. McAllister yet, I prevailed with Mr. Jenison to go after the Exercises on the North side were finished.
