If but one heard, it was worth all the labour
Fri. 9 Sept 1743. I rode in quest of St. Hilary Downs, ten or twelve miles south-east of St. Ives. And the Downs I found, but no congregation, neither man, woman, nor child. But by that time I had put on my gown and cassock about an hundred gathered themselves together, whom I earnestly called ‘to repent and believe the gospel’. And if but one heard, it was worth all the labour.
