Whitefield Glad to Arrive in Georgia
Sunday, May 7. Arrived at Savannah Town about seven this Evening, and joined in Prayer, and a Psalm of Thanksgiving with Mr. Delamotte, and some Pious souls that were rejoiced at my Arrival: The good LORD sanctify our meeting to his Glory and his People’s Welfare.
Spent the remainder of the Evening in taking sweet Counsel with Mr. Delamotte, who seems providentially left behind at Savannah against my coming. How sweetly does Providence order Things for us! Oh may I constantly follow it as the wise Men did the star in the East.
