November 8, 1778

1778 November 8 (Sunday).  So kind and gracious is God that we are permitted to see the light and enjoy the privileges of this day, which begins the 55th year since the founding this church and my Ordination.  While I bless God for His long Suffering, I would humble myself for my unfaithfulness and unprofitableness, imploring pardoning Mercy through the great Redeemer, and Grace to help me, and that may be sufficient for me for the Future.  Preached on II Pet. 1.12.13.  P.M. on v. 14 with proper alterations of the last, which had been delivered before.  N.B. Several gentlemen were at meeting, p.m. which I suppose came from the Arbitration at Chauxit.
