In Their Own Words

June 24, 1738

Whitfield Preached Before Masons

George Whitefield had dinner with Savannah’s Masons, and was thankful to be doing anything after almost dying from a virulent fever two days previously:

“Friday, June 24. To the great Surprise of myself and People, was enabled to read Prayers and preach with Power before the Free-Masons, with whom I afterwards dined, and was used with the utmost civility.”
