Monday 13 December 1756

In the evening read 5 of Tillotson’s sermons, 4 of which were on the immortality of the soul, proved by the light of nature, by reason and also by the gospel. I find in them several citations from the heathen and Roman philosophers which showed they were not without hopes of a future state.
