Thur. January 24. — I rode to Brentford, where, after a stop of ten or twelve years, the work of God is broke out afresh. I preached in a large place newly fitted up. It was supposed, there would be much disturbance, as a considerable number of rude, boisterous people were gathered together for that purpose. But God over-ruled, and they all calmly and silently attended to his word. Surely the “times and seasons” of sending his word effectually to any place, “God hath reserved in his own power.”
