Mr. Paine, preached here, in the forenoon from Acts IV. 12. Neither is there salvation
in any other, and in the afternoon from I of Corinthians XVI. 14. Let all your things
be done with Charity. The morning discourse was doctrinal, and therefore not so pleasing
a Subject as the other; which was excellent. His arguments in favour of Charity, were
such as naturally arise from the Subject, but well arranged, and in a very agreeable
Stile. His delivery is good, but his length of Stature is such, as prevents his appearing
so graceful as he otherwise might. Upon the whole he drew my attention more than any
preacher I have heard for several months.
Bridge passed the evening in my Chamber.
