Sunday, August 17 1760

In the morning my friend George Richardson came to see me and breakfasted with us, and he, my brother Slater, my wife and self at church in the morning, the text in Luke 16:25: “And Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receiveset thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.”

My brother and George Richardson dined with us on a loin of veal roasted and French beans, a currant rice pudding and cucumbers. My brother went away immediately after dinner. No service at our church in the afternoon, Mr Porter preaching at Laughton. My friend George stayed and drank tea with us; then my wife and I went and brought him going on his road home.

In the evening Thomas Davy sat with us some time. We had in my opinion on excellent sermon in the morning, and Oh, may the God of all mercy pour into my heart the graces of His Holy Spirit, that I may not only be a Christian by profession, but also in works, and that I may sincerely obey the Gospel of my blessed Redeemer.
