Heard Dr. Chauncey in the Morning upon these Words “As Paul reasoned of Righteousness,
Temperance, and Judgment to come Faelix trembled.” The Dr. dilated upon the Subject
of Pauls Discourse, the great moral Duties of Justice and Temperance as they are connected
with the future Judgment. Upon the Apostles manner, he reasoned &c., and upon the
Effect, that such Reasoning had upon Faelix, it made him tremble.
In the Afternoon Dr. Cooper sounded harmoniously, upon the deceitfullness of Sin.
The Drs. Air and Action are not gracefull—they are not natural and easy. His Motions
with his Head, Body and Hands are a little stiff and affected. His Style is not simple
enough for the Pulpit. It is too flowery, too figurative—his Periods too much or rather
too apparently rounded and laboured.—This however Sub Rosâ, because the Dr. passes
for a Master of Composition, and is an excellent Man.
