National Fast

Wed 10 Feb 1779: Today was the National Fast. So solemn a one I never saw before. From one end of the city to the other there was scarce anyone seen in the streets. All places of public worship were crowded in an uncommon degree, and an unusual awe sat on most faces. I preached on the words of God to Abraham, interceding for Sodom, ‘I will not destroy the city for his sake.’
