1777 Wednesday Sept. 24.

Fine Morning. We all went to Meeting last Evening, where Mr. Edwine gave the People a short discourse in German, and the Congregation sung and the organ playd. There were about 200 Women and as many Men. The Women sat together in one Body and the Men { 267 } in another. The Women dressed all alike. The Womens Heads resembled a Garden of white Cabbage Heads.
