June 21, 1750

1750 June 21 (Thursday).  Ebenezer did so much as to mow the Garden and foreyard a.m.  I rode to Mr. Martyns — din’d there.  Thunder storm arose and detain’d me an Hour or Two.  Brought Molly home.  Mr. Martyn came with me.  Lecture to young men was appointed to be at 4 p.m. but we were 34 Minutes after, when we began being hinder’d by the Storm.  Mr. Martyn preach’d on Josh. 24.21.  N.B. I rode out at Eve by Express Desire to a woman (one of the Members of the Church who has try’d to hang herself) this Day.  A most astonishing power which the Devil has among us!
