In Their Own Words

June 24, 1737

Wesley Thanked for Sermon

Though evangelist John Wesley had his problems in Savannah, on this day he was well received, as Thomas Causton noted in his journal:

“24 June: … The Society of Free Masons held their Annual Feast after had been at Church & heard a Sermon, & broke up about 3 o’Clock. Mr Wesley dined with us, & received the Thanks of the Society for his suitable Sermon… .”
