July 2ist.  The Wind S. blowing very moderate, cloudy dark weather and a thick moist Air and warm all day; about 6 in ye Evening it made some mizling rain : The Priest preached on 2:Tim: Chap 2d. verse ist. Tho the whole bent of his preachment was – intended to exhort his Auditors to improve in Grace, he did not so much as endeavour to explain the word Grace to them, wch. without explaining to them the signification of the word, was the same thing as if he talked to them in Arabick, for I dare affirm not one in the whole house knew what it meant, and I much question whether he knew himself, or else sure he would have given his hearers some Notion of it: he endeavoured indeed to lay down the Means – that should be used in order to improve in Grace which he did very confusedly and dark in 5 or 6 Instances these he described so obscurely and perplexed that I protest, tho I gave all ye Attention that I could, yet I could hear nothing that could convey the least Idea of what he first set out with, namely the word Grace.
