Feb: 19. This week dry and cold, water scarce with the millers already: god good in the health of me and mine, heard Mr R.H. had the smallpox at London, the lord in mercy restore him, and let him live in thy sight. the lord in mercy was more in my thoughts, and Satans annoyances less than sometimes, lord rebuke him, and bid him get hence, give me discerning in what you are doing, and let thy grace suffice me, heard of tumults at London, lord in thee is my peace.
