At Worcester

Thu 18 Mar 1779: Upon inquiry, I found there had been no morning preaching [at Worcester] since the Conference! So the people were of course weak and faint. At noon, I preached in Bewdley, in an open space at the head of the town, to a very numerous and quiet congregation. Here Mrs. Clark informed me, ‘This day twelvemonth I found peace with God; and the same day my son, till then utterly thoughtless, was convinced of sin. Some time after, he died, rejoicing in God and praising him with his latest breath.’
