Sunday, August 28 1757

A very windy and rainy night, rather like a tempest than not. Myself, wife and maid at church this morning (the two boys staying at home on account of the badness of the weather); the text in Revelation 22:12: “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner; viz., on a piece of cold pork and part of the shoulder of lamb roasted on Friday. My whole family at church this afternoon; the text in Jeremiah 17:7 “Blessed is, the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.” I think we had two as good sermons today as I ever heard Mr Porter preach. Thomas Davy at our house in the evening, to whom, and in the day, I read 4 of Tillotson’s sermons. This day while we were at church in the forenoon, we had the highest wind that I ever knew.
