Ap: 12: This week the Lord was good in many mercies and good providences to us, he in love continue his goodness to us. I had experience of my own weakness, Lord uphold me I am yours and cause me to delight in you: God good to me in the Sabbath and exercises thereof, given notice of a day of thanksgiving, heard that an Anabaptist, rebaptising a maid who died presently was committed to prison, the good Lord in mercy accept me and keep me from every error and evil work, heard how I was threatened by Potter , but in my god is my trust, knowing I have not done more than I ought to do.
