May 5, 1751

1751 May 5 (Sunday).  Read Lev. 26 with some Exposition chiefly extracted from Mr. Henry,[1] as has been my method for some time.  Preach’d a. and p.m. on 1 Tim.  I din’d as usual.  P.M. read Acts 17.

[1]Matthew Henry (1662-1714), the learned dissenting divine, was the author of numerous works published in England.  Several of his writings had been published in America.
