February 15, 1756

1756 February 15 (Sunday).  Read 1 King 8 to v. 23.  Preached on Heb. 12.29, repeating what I had heretofore delivered on that Text, but with Alterations and Additions.  The Occasion was Several, late remarkable Judgments of God, not only Malignant Fever among our selves, but very Observable Desolations of great Citys abroad, by Fires and Earthquake.  Ex. gr. Constantinople, in which last Sept. 25,000 Houses and above 800 Persons were destroyed.  P.M. read Mat. 11 and Preached on Mat. 16.24 and May God give His Special Blessing!
