Congregational diary of First Moravian Church of Philadelphia, 1747-1748
Although the cover suggests this diary covers a date span of 1747 to 1751, entries actually run from January 1, 1747 to December 31, 1748. Topics covered include: sermons preached; visits to church members, especially those who were ailing; baptisms and burials; meetings, conferences and love feasts; members' travels and correspondence; relations with local Quakers; and admission of new members. Records of sermons and meetings often include notes about the language spoken - English, German, or both.
