Description

David Dailey's diary from March 17 to November 19, 1817. On March 17 Dailey left the circuit and took his wife Sally to meet his family. He then attended the Philadelphia Conference, where he was appointed to the Accomack circuit.

As with his first few diaries, Dailey recounts his travels, the people he meets, including separate black classes, and his physical and emotional state throughout. He still experiences bouts of sickness and depression, but also finds happiness in preaching, visiting the sick, performing baptisms, and attending camp meetings. During this time, Sally gives birth to a son. Also during this time, Dailey describes several trials, including those involving black members, and is involved in matters of church discipline such as expelling a member for "selling a human being in the Southern States."
