Friday, January 9, 1656–7.
This day the Parliament, according to former order, kept
a day of fasting and humiliation within their own walls,
where the work of the day was carried on by Dr. Reynolds,
Mr. Caryl, and Mr. Barker.
Mr. Caryl only prayed, the other two preached, and very
good sermons they said. (I was not well, so could not attend the service.) It held till past four. I believe we shall
have them both in print shortly, by order of the House. I
am sorry I missed them.
