I was lead by a spontaneous impulse of repentance

On December 20, 1808, he wrote in a letter to Thomas Dawes:

“About a year ago, an unusual revival of religion took place in New Haven…and I was lead by a spontaneous impulse of repentance, prayer, and entire submission of myself to my Maker and Redeemer. In the month of April last, I made a profession of faith.”. This unusual revival was a part of the Great Awakening that shook America in the early 19th Century.
