S. 3: Visited a sick man one Guy Penhacke who was much troubled in mind upon his life; he had strong temptations from Satan. I urged him to a Covenant with god to be a new man if he recovered the Lord sanctify his hand to him and make me careful of my conversation, oh how sadly is the Soul(d) afflicted that in death has its sins a dreadful load, and apprehends not mercy but justice alone in god./
