October 8. god good to me in many mercies, enjoyment of my friends, heard of the welfare of others(.) An this morning we spied had a tooth cut in her 16. week, the season very hopeful and comfortable, the lord good in the world, but still oh my leanness and deadness of spirit, and with shaking fears, oh that I could live more in christ, and more above the daily corruptions of my heart.
