Journal Entry

June 20, 1838 ~ Wednesday

20th I had an interview with cousin Seth Woodruff the son of Ozem Woodruff he had become a young
man of about 16. he left us & returned home. I took a walk alone in the old mill lane as the sun was

setting in the western horizon. It brought fresh to my recollection the days of my youth when I was wont to travel
this road with PHILO, ASAHEL & others but time wiat'ess for no man. after taking this walk I returned to fathers
house & Preached to the citizens of farmington the congregation was principly composed of rich men I had the spirit
of preaching & I warned them not to trust in uncertain riches. [1 Timothy 6:17] I spoke upon the second coming & reign of Christ Job 19 ch.
I thank the Lord for giving me the privilege of preaching the fullness of the gospel to the inhabitants of Farmington &
to friends & relatives {The Lord often causes the pride of the rich and proud learned to be brought at the feet of weak things}
