My wife and I both at church in the morning. The text in I Thessalonians 5:21: “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” We were both also at church in the afternoon. The text was the same as in the morning. Finished reading Physico-Theology, or, a Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God from the Works of Creation, by Derham. In the afternoon the proclamation for a general fast on the 6th of Feb. next was read on account of the dreadful earthquake which happened at Lisbon and many other places on the 1st day of Nov. last, and several times since. Not out of doors all day except to church. This day John Jones’s wife and Mr Peter Adams’s daughter died. Paid for milk ½d.
