In Their Own Words

March 11, 1739

Whitefield Recorded Funeral

George Whitefield gave his own account of the day noted above in his diary:

“Buried this Evening one of the Women that came over with me, who I trust died in the Lord. The Orphans sung before the Corpse from our House to the Court-House, where I preached, and after gave another Word of Exhortation at the Grave. My Soul was much affected with the Awfulness of the Solemnity. The Word came with Power.”
