1751 May 5 (Sunday). Read Lev. 26 with some Exposition chiefly extracted from Mr. Henry, as has been my method for some time. Preach’d a. and p.m. on 1 Tim. 188.8.131.52. I din’d as usual. P.M. read Acts 17.
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.
