No: 16: Chester news untrue: This week was gracious to us in many outward mercies. I was somewhat troubled with pose and cold but not much I praise my god: my wife held up and indifferent well, my sons face almost well only very red: god was good in the Sabbath, he go out with his word and make it effectual, some subscribed a petition of my drawing to the parliament for some addition of means to our living from them. it must be god that prospers every design.
