October. 1: This week past was a very comfortable, and cheerful season, a summer time indeed, therein god was good to me, and mine in our peace, health, plenty, in my little ones, who answer their mothers pains and learn comfortably with her, the lord good to me in delivering me from the power of many corrupt temptations oh preserve me spotless and blameless to the coming of Jesus Christ, the lord was good to me in the Sabbath in the duties and exercises thereof, the lord in mercy pardon my sin and accept me for his names sake,
