29. This day I renewed the resolution of Aug. 23. 1647 about books to put it in execution, and to set out the 10th of all receipts in money that are paid unto as rents, or profits towards charitable uses. thus viz in 10s. because of giving many things in kind at the door every 4s. towards books and necessary things for my study. and the other 6s. to dispose towards such charitable uses, as god shall give me a fit opportunity for, and this I desire to do out of obedience unto god, and in love to the service and commands of god, and christ. This day a great eclipse. see memorials of this day.
