P: Fast: die: 24: wherein god merciful in giving me strength for the labour of the day the good god in mercy accept us, and be reconciled unto the nation, very hard times I never knew the like want for money in my life, blessed by god I have anything, learn me in every condition to bless thy name, and be content with thy providence.

[Weather:] The winter was warm, very wet, until the Public Fast for good weather and since kindly: no frost until February that month, most frost, the latter end very fair, and comfortably warm, my apricot and Melocoton tree had either of them a blossom or more upon them Feb:27.
