11: This day I and my family cheerly through mercy, we found not the hall cold but that we could well endure the same; my wife only has got a cold in her neck which makes it very stiff; at night a poor woman fell into Goodman Burtons cellar, and hurt her very much, it's of gods mercy that my little busy children have been preserved all this time. at night we removed, and lay in our old chamber, It was a strong wind and stormy night, I feared my pales had been blown down, but in the morning I found it otherwise.
