May 19, 1771

1771 May 19 (Sunday).  Read Ezek. 43.  Preached on Prov. 4.23.  P.M. read 1 Tim. 2.  Prepared in great Measure with reference to our Political State, on Ezek. 48, ult. Jehovah Shammah — but did not finish it.  Chose rather to use, with alterations (viz. new Introduction and new Conclusion) Sermon on 2 Chron. 15.2, “Hear ye me,” etc.  N.B. Took notice of the Times — in London — and had Regard to the important Affair of choosing a Representative tomorrow.  N.B. Mr. Levi Warrin at noon gave me his Paper again, expecting it should be laid before the Church.  This I did, after the Exercises — and the Church voted acceptance.  Miss Sally Woods with us.
