October 15, 1752

1752 October 15 (Sunday).  I had not prepar’d, by Means of my Indispositions and Avocations (partly; and partly I fear through my too great Negligence — which may God in infinite Mercy forgive through Jesus Christ!).  I took a Text conformable to the general Subject which I had been of late upon, viz. the eighth Commandment — honouring the Lord with our substance: the Text was Ps. 11.7 and I us’d my Expositions of Mat. 6.  P.M. I repeated Sermon on John 17.3 to page 12.  N.B. My Brothers Expressions (denoting Assurance) in the Morning before we went to Meeting.  N.B. he din’d at Deacon Newtons.
