11. A day to be remembered with humility in respect of the experience of my own weakness and yet with thankfulness in respect of gods great goodness. that passage in Isay: 57.17.18 smote my heart. ever Lord give me a tender spirit. I hope it tended to good, to greater care and watchfulness, I am nothing in my own eyes, nay Lord worse than nothing.
