Description

David Dailey's diary from his time preaching on the Dorchester circuit, from April 5th 1813 to April 5th 1814. Dailey recounts his travels, the people he meets, including separate "black classes," and his physical and emotional state throughout. Entries paint a picture of a difficult life, as Dailey was lonely, suffered from hoarseness, and often traveled through bad weather to find only small gatherings and "hardened sinners." He often prays for greater faith in order to persevere.
