17. This day Mrs Mary Church made a disposal of her estate, which amounts to 21li. per annum in land, the trust whereof, she laid on me, a burden heavy but I dare not refuse it, in regard providence lead me to it, god in mercy raise her up if possible, if otherwise, give me life and wisdom for the work that I may perform it faithfully.
