No: 19: The lord good to me and mine in outward mercies. this week was cold and snowy and wet, and now clear and frosty, and so very seasonable, this week a sad hand of god on John Church dying in a very nasty condition, the lice running by 100ds on his face, and crawling into his mouth, oh that I could tremble before the lord, this day my heart let out on behalf of my sister, the lord revive her in mercy, god was good to me in the word, my heart in some measure plain towards the interest of christ, but its but strait, and I find much inactivity therein.
