In Their Own Words

Wesleys Encountered Rough Seas
“Sat. May 22. About four in the afternoon we enter’d upon Doboy Sound. The Wind, which was right a Head, was so high, when we were in the middle of it, and the Sea so rough, being driven in at the inlet, that the Boat was on the Point of sinking every Moment. But it pleased God to bring us safe to the other Side in half an Hour, and to Frederica the next morning. We had Publick Prayers at Nine, at which nineteen Persons were present; and (I think) nine Communicants.”
