Sun. 17 July 1785 (Ireland). I preached both morning and evening on the education of children. I now spoke chiefly to the parents, informing them that I designed to speak to the children at five the next morning. Monday 18 at five, not only the morning chapel was well filled, but many stood in the large Chapel. I trust they did not come in vain. The rest of the week, I was fully employed in writing for the Magazine and preparing for the Conference. Sunday 24, I preached at West Street, morning and afternoon, when both the largeness and earnestness of the congregation gave me a comfortable hope of a blessing at the ensuing Conference.
