Silence

Tue 23 Feb 1768: I rode to Shoreham and preached at five in Mr. Perronet’s house. But the next day, I preached in the church, being St. Matthias’s Day. I then rode back to a large room which is taken in Rotherhithe, above three miles from London Bridge. Although the people were strangely squeezed together, yet they appeared to be all attention. Not a cough was to be heard. I strongly exhorted them to ‘call upon the Lord while he is near’. And when I had concluded, no one offered to move, but everyone stood still in his place till I had passed through them.
