John Wesley has been depicted as a "man of action" based on the lively incidents reported in his published Journal. But his private diary and letters reveal a quieter and more introspective side to Wesley. This article examines John Wesley's activities on 2 April 1739, the first day he preached in the open air without church authorization, and shows how his quieter activities prepared him for bolder actions.
