This forenoon we had a Lecture from Mr. Wigglesworth,1
the Professor of Divinity, upon the Question, whether Some Persons, had not carried
their Ideas of the Depravity of human Nature, too far? He appeared to reason very
coolly, and without prejudice upon it. He supposed that although mankind, are greatly
depraved; yet that the Scriptures, show, he is not so, absolutely in capable of doing
any thing good. In the afternoon Mr. Cranch, and Dr. Tufts, stop'd here, on their
Road to Lincoln.
