August: 27. This week the Lord was good, and merciful to us, in respect of our peace and preservation, providing for me and mine at my Lady Honywoods , but oh how wretched is my heart, oh how vain and filthy, lord when will you subdue all my iniquities under me,

22. we kept a day of humiliation: that night we heard of the scots route, on friday the season set in comfortably, and on the Lords day, Colchester agreed to surrender(.) Speedy and sweet answers of prayers.
