June 12, 1757

1757 June 12 (Sunday).  Read 2 K. 18.  Preached on Jer. 50.7 because of the present melancholly aspects.  P.M. read Mark 11, and not being able to prepare the designed afternoon sermon I repeated with some enlargements Sermon 1 on Job 15.11 on Consideration of the Death of the late excellent Mrs. Rachel Rice and altho’ I would be humble for my Defects, yet would be thankful for the Assistances afforded, so that it became a peculiar season.  I was much moved my self and hope Others were so.  O that God would grant an abiding Effect!
