The most miserable sermon Wesley ever heard

Fri 28 Jan 1743: I left Bristol on Friday 28, came to Reading on Saturday, and to Windsor on Sunday morning. Thence I walked over to Egham, where Mr. ---- preached one of the most miserable sermons I ever heard: stuffed so full of dull, senseless, improbable lies of those he complimented with the title of ‘false prophets’.
I preached at one, and endeavoured to rescue the poor text (Mt. 7:15) out of so bad hands. About four I left Egham, and at eight in the evening met a joyful congregation at the Foundery.
