Only one person inattentive

Sun 24 July 1774: On Friday and Saturday, I made a little excursion into Yorkshire and on Sunday 24, I preached at eight at Gringley on the Hill to an huge congregation, among whom I could observe but one person that was inattentive. Here I received an invitation from Mr. Harvey to give him a sermon at Finningley. I came thither a little before the service began, and the church was filled but not crowded. Between three and four, I returned to Epworth. The congregation there was large last Sunday, but it was nearly doubled now, and never had we from the beginning a more solemn and affectionate parting.
