Nov: 24: All this week god exercised us with colds. I had a rheum in my eye, and in my neck that did a little break out, my wife and son had great colds, my daughter prettily well recovered, the Lord gave us but a little affliction, and a multitude of mercy and loving kindness: lord do you sanctify your hand to us, his mercy we are not consumed, god good to me and mine in our healths generally, peace, plenty, in his ordinances in the Sabbath, oh that I could love and fear him for he is my god(,) pardon my sins and fit me to honour the(e) more every day than other,
