6: This week past the lord was good to me and mine in many outward mercies, in my spouse health though weak, the word good and sweet to me in the Sabbath oh that my heart could mourn after the lord, and delight more in him. my heart expects trouble. and is even straitened until it be over, most men secure: my heart seldom let out in private prayer: the things of the world frequently overrunning my mind. heard Mr H and wife at London not well, the good lord take care of them.
