Dec: 26. This week the Lord continued gracious and merciful unto us, in our peace, plenty, health, in all outward mercies, I was never so free from rheums, poses, and colds, in all my memory as hitherto in this winter, only troubled now and then with a fullness in my chest, and a little wheezing when laid in bed, the lord merciful in preserving me from many failings whereunto subject, he in mercy accept me and incline his heart to fear him: god was merciful to me in the Sabbath, and in the duties thereof to his name be praise.
