June. 21. God was good to me in outward mercies and favours, my wife only ill with cold a mixture yet of mercy with the sorrow, the lord be gracious to her for soul and body, god good to me in giving me a spirit sensible of my own weakness and desiring to live in uprightness before him, god good to me in the Sabbath and the exercises thereof, enlarging my heart and enabling of me to speak home and close to my people gathered also nearly 40s. for poor Leicester.
