D: 6: My tongue continued a little sore, yet praised be god, it did not unfit me for the work of the Sabbath: my cold continued, but very gentle: I went on in my endeavour in the Hebrew, and made good progress therein, blessed be on my god and also my family continued in health, the season still wet, but generally warm, men sow, and corn did thrive well upon the ground, the Lord gracious in opening my condition more to me, in keeping me from evil, and in engaging my heart more closely to him, the Lord was good to me in the exercise of his day, he go out with the word and bless the same; Things are doubtful for the Scots and us, but Ormond in Ireland played deceitfully.
