Jan: 5. The Lord was good to us in our health and outward mercies this week past, in his presence with me, and refreshing my heart with his love, it is he only enables to believe, all the world cannot quiet the conscience, but god alone, my sinful heart trembles if he support me not, the smallpox now in divers families. god still preserves mine for which I bless and praise his most holy name, this day Mr Woodcocke preached both times for me.
