June. 4: a hot day. yet the hail appeared in some places, the lord good in outward mercies to me, oh that my heart were thereby engaged to him, the lord remember me in mercy for unto thee I desire to commit my cause, the lord own me and do me good in every condition, that I may be in the love and fear of his most holy name, my heart somewhat raised up in preaching, and god does melt some spirits, blessed be god oh that I might serve the seed of christ and be useful to them.
