January 15, 1769

1769 January 15 (Sunday).  Had a Sad Night of deep Reflections but was more comfortable in the Morning.  Preached a.m. on Eph. 4.30.  The composing of which had took up my Time, So that I prepared no more, but went on with the Repetition of Sermon on 1 Joh. 1.3, viz. from p. 17 to 25.  Mrs. Maynard dined with us.  At Eve after our Family Exercise we read Dr. Youngs Estimate of human Life.
