Excerpt from The Congregational Quarterly, Vol. 1: January, 1859
Souls of the Company dinner ended, he read Scripture, referring to the Sab batism which before was the subject of his thoughts, and he prayed and sang a hymn regarding it; again, he prayed for Zion; he read through the sermon he was about to preach, and prayed as well for personal grace as to its exhortations, as for its public success; he preached, and spent about three Hours in carrying on the Service there, in a great Assembly excessively tired, he drank his be loved tea he prayed for his daily needs; he catechised the children, and went through the Sermons with them, and faithfully taught them in their duties; having left a son to catechise the servants, he retired to his study, and then asked himself, What have I left undone that it would be for my Consolation and Satis faction to do before I die; he read in a book of Piety, a Sermon that might add unto the Heavenly Tincture on his Mind he was called to pray with a sick person; returning, he renewed his instructions to his children he sang, with the family, the evening hymn; again, in his study, he gave thanks to God for the mercies of the day, and committed himself to the hands of his dear Saviour so he went to Rest.
