11: Went to my Lady Honywoods , disappointed in my expectation to have joined with them in a day of humiliation but it was put off, my Lady had a man that broke his shoulder with a fall from his horse, my loving neighbour goodman Burton escaped a great danger his mare kicked him backwards upon his belly. it begun to swell, oh gods protection and providence to be adored; my wife and sister and son finely well, the Lord be praised who the day and night before were very ill, oh my god remember them for good. you have been good to my family, continue so still.
