October 1, 1752

1752 October 1 (Sunday).  It prov’d very rainy and confin’d me at both a. and p.m., a sore Frown of God’s holy Sovereign Providence that I am thus chastiz’d.  I design’d to have preach’d again upon Mic. 7.9, but am forbid.  May I have Grace to utter my Text my Self!  Dr. Watt’s sermon 18 of volume 1 read (on Rom. 1.16).  The Weather clears up about 4 or 5 p.m.
