Poor William Hamilton
Thu Apr 1 1779: About one, I preached at New Mills, in Derbyshire. A commodious preaching-house, lately built, has proved a blessing to the whole country. They flock together from every quarter and are thankful both to God and man. In the evening, I preached at Stockport, where I received a strange account of poor William Hamilton, who left us to join the Quakers and is as miserable as he can live, afraid to see any man lest he should kill him. O what a poor exchange has this unhappy man made!
