Reading Experience:

'September 2. I had bin grievously and causlessly defamed by one from whom I deserved it not; this day he came to quarrell with mee, and I used bitter expressions to him . . . but see a providence to humble mee! I had lent a booke which was newly come home; before I sett it up I opened it up by chance . . . and found the beginning of Bishop Hall's sermon upon Ephesians 4:30, who tooke notice that by the connexion of the text 'twas evident that sinns of the tongue did unkindly grieve God's spirit. This struck me with griefe, and shame, resolving to be more watchfull heerafter, which God grant!'
