Preaching to a wild, unbroken herd
Mon. 18 July 1774. I reached Brigg before eight and, by the request of the chief persons in the town, preached at nine in the market-place to a large and attentive congregation. Hence I went on to Tealby and preached near the church to a multitude of plain, serious country people. Very different from the wild, unbroken herd to whom I preached at Horncastle in the evening.
