Sacrament day. Mr. Hilliard preach'd an occasional sermon in the forenoon; and in
the afternoon from Acts IV. 28. We pass'd the evening at the professors, in company
with Mr. Andrews.
This day completes two years, since, I attempted to commit to paper, the transactions,
which daily occurr'd, in which I was concerned. It is a question, whether amidst the
quantity of trivial events, to which I have given place, and the heap of trash which
I have here inserted, there is sufficient matter worthy of remembrance, to compensate
for the time I have spent in writing. For these 15 months, the Scenes before me have
been so much alike, that these pages have not even the small merit of variety: but
to myself I have always spoken, for myself I have always written, and to myself only,
I am accountable for the nonsense, and folly in this and the preceding Volume.
