At home all day, and in the afternoon read part of Chesselden’s Anatomy. In the evening read a sermon written by the Rev Robert Warren D.D. entitled, “The Churchman’s Daily Companion”, being the second sermon on this subject, and which I think a very good one; he fully explains the necessity and usefulness of frequenting public prayer.
