Sept: 24: this week a good week for seed, some rain fell, yet waters low and dead, the lord good to me and mine in our health and peace and plenty, oh how do I find my heart dead and empty, and so apt to receive in base and unworthy thoughts and walk with them, that I cannot but sigh and look upwards, oh lord when will you undertake for me. this day cheerful, cool and dry. the lord in some measure present in my heart therein.
