June: 22: This was a week of much mercy to my family, to me my eyes better. my daughter recovered, I was designed to a place of service in the army. Lord enable me for it and make me faithful and useful in the same; to the nation in the great victory and the consequences of it, as also in smaller fights in divers parts of the kingdom; god was good to me in the sabbath his name be praised, in the ordinance of baptism, I baptised after the order of the directory; I gave notice of a fast. and a day of thanksgiving, Lord fit and enable me with ability and strength for the days thereof in much mercy I entreat thee./
