On this date, August 24, 1748, John Wesley and his fellow preacher William Grimshaw were attacked while preaching.

Not much is written about Grimshaw these days, but a letter from him sums up the character of this man.

“When I come to die, I shall have my greatest grief and my greatest joy – my greatest grief that I have done so little for Jesus; and my greatest joy that Jesus has done so much for me. My last words shall be: Here goes an unprofitable servant.”
