May: 13: This week god was good and merciful to me and mine in our peace, health, and in his free provision for us in these days of scarcity. oh that thy grace might so keep me, that no iniquity might have dominion over me, this day I baptised my son Ralph , the lord wash him, sanctify him that he may be his own, my baby was troubled with wind, and made water with a great crying fit, god blessed means so that he was finally well,
