The rabble had designed to make their general assault in the evening

Mon. 19 Sept 1743. We were informed the rabble had designed to make their general assault in the evening. But one of the aldermen came, at the request of the mayor, and stayed with us the whole time of the service. So that no man opened his mouth while I explained, ‘None is like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heavens unto thy help, and in his excellency upon the sky.’
