Apr: 30: This day the day of public fast, god enabled me in some measure for the same, he accept me and pardon and forgive me, a sweet seasonable weather, very forward spring, Lord accept me and mine and delight in us, look upon the nation in mercy, over night my wife in want of fresh butter for our children, late at night a neighbour unexpectedly sent us in two pounds, here was a providence suited to our necessities.
