July 1, 1744

1744 July 1 (Sunday).  On Isa. 66.2.  N.B. p.m. there arose a great Storm of Rain and Thunder, just as we broke off our public Exercises which detain’d the Assembly in the Meeting House.  I led them to Sing part of Ps. 147.  N.B. Mr. Stephen Fays Wife cry’d out very much at the Time of a loud Clap of Thunder.  I discours’d with her at my House afterwards before She went home, and She said the Spirit of God struck here at the Same Time with that Clap, and (having been in great Distress for some Time before) she was fill’d with much Terror by reason of her sins.
