June: 11: The lord good to me and mine in many outward mercies. Tho. in danger in the water, but the lord preserved him, oh that I had a heart to love and fear his most holy name, the lord good to me in the Sabbath, I find my heart a little more open and enlarged than at sometimes, and yet sufficiently straitened, great noise that the King of Scots is in the land, the season hot, and dry. great signs of plenty on the ground, poor people very brisk, god sanctify this plenty.
