Lewis Town, Pennsylvania

Went ashore at Lewis Town, read prayers and preached in the church to a small and unmoved congregation...Though weeping may not always be a sign of grace, yet I think it is an evidence of the hardness of our hearts and a lack of a due sense of sin, when we can remain unmoved at the account of the sufferings of a dying saviour.


Most of the houses are built of wood; it is not more than half as big. But more plentiful in respect of provision, than Savannah in Georgia...Preached at two in the afternoon to a serious and attentive congregation. Persons of different denominations were present; and the congregation was larger than might be expected in so small a place, and at so short notice.
