Sept: 17. This week past, god was good to me, and mine, in all our outward mercies and enjoyments. the weather fair, the face of affairs strange, the lord in mercy make me sensible. that no evil come upon me unawares, the lord good to me in the Sabbath. yet I find a want of zeal, and inward fervour of spirit, the lord do me good, for his own name sake.
