Nov: 8: My cold still continuing in stuffing and a little wheezing in nights: I found a great mixture of mercy with gods dealing, receiving no prejudice thereby; god was good to me in the health, and preservation of the rest of family, good in the Sabbath and in the duties thereof, the Lord in mercy accept me, and pardon my many sins, I have great experience of the treacherousness of my own heart, Lord undertake for me and deliver me from the power of every evil work: Heard my 50li. per annum was likely to come to nothing, gods will be done, he is all sufficient to provide for me.
