Preached in a meadow under a tall oak.

Tue, 2 August, 1774. I preached at ten in the town hall at Evesham and rode on to Broad Marston. Thursday 4, I crossed over to Tewkesbury and preached at noon in a meadow near the town under a tall oak. I went thence to Cheltenham. As it was the high season for drinking the waters, the town was full of gentry. So I preached near the market-place in the evening to the largest congregation that was ever seen there. Some of the footmen, at first, made a little disturbance. But I turned to them, and they stood reproved.
