Sunday, September 6 1755

My wife and I at church in the morning; the text in Hebrews 12:5: ” …my son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” My wife and I at church in the afternoon; the text in [Luke] 14:14: “…for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.” After churchtime Master Piper stayed and smoked a pipe with me. After we had drunk tea, my wife and I took a walk. In the evening read Derham’s Sermons at Boyle’s Lectures, wherein I find a man evacuates as much in one day by insensible perspiration as in 14 by stool.
