Myself, wife and servant at church in the morning. We dined on part of a hog’s cheek boiled and greens. No service at our church in the afternoon, Mr Porter preaching at Laughton, but, it being a wet afternoon, I did not go to any church.
My wife and I drank tea with Mrs Atkins. In the evening and the day read part of Burkitt on the New Testament and one of Tillotson’s sermons, which I think a very fine one, setting forth and showing the absolute necessity of an early piety, and the danger of a death-bed repentance.
