Oct: 1: This week past, god was very good to me, and mine in many mercies, the season very comfortable, a gallant seed time, grass growing, a great plenty even of all things, wheat wonderfully cheap, the lord by these mercies draw our hearts near unto him, and make me active in my generation for his name, I find my heart very dead, and backward in the things of god, oh Lord quicken thou me.
