My whole family at church in the morning. …We dined on a bullock’s heart pudding, a piece of pork and potatoes. No churching in the afternoon, Mr Porter setting out on his journey for London in the afternoon. In reading of one of Tillotson’s sermons I find the following passage which God give me grace to engrave on my heart and to make it the constant rule of my actions: “Let us be strick and constant in our piety and Devotion towards God; chaste and temperate in reference to ourselves; Just and Honest, Kind and Charitable, humble and meek, Patient and peaceable towards all Men; Submissive and obedient to our Superiors, natural, civil, and Spiritual.”

In the evening Thomas Davy sat with us a while, to whom, and in the day, I read 5 of Tillotson’s sermons.
