Ice cold in a leaky carriage
Sun 27 Feb 1785: I preached in Stepney Church, one of the largest parish churches in England. Monday 28, the Diligence reached Salisbury about eight in the evening. About nine, we left it. So keen a frost I hardly ever felt before. And our carriage let in the air on all sides, so that we could hardly preserve life. However, soon after five on Tuesday evening we got to Exeter.
