1757 April 21 (Thursday). Publick Fast, on account of the Signal Advantages which the French gained over us in the Year Past, and on Account of our present Circumstances. I preached a.m. on 2 Chr. 6.34.35, repeating sermon on 1 K. 8.44.45. P.M. preached on Ps. 78, v. 34 to 37, which May God bless (as to the Special and Saving Good of the people, So to my own)! I desire to lament my unpreparedness and Slothfulness. May the Lord quicken me, and recover me!
