29. This day I had a little pose, and roughness of rheum in my throat, my god will ordain for my good and make up by the enjoying of himself all my losses, troubles and sorrows and cause them to pass away as the waters, my desires are with David that god would purge and wash me thoroughly from my sins, oh let the humour have me settling stay behind if it be your pleasure.
