Jan: 28. god good to me and mine, the season frosty, this day, the lord gave us his word and the freedom of his table, my sister Mary loath to receive the elements as she sat with us. I spoke as god directed me, she complied, and I trust gods mind was so she should(.) the lord persuade my heart more to love in his sight, all whist in the nation on the dissolution of the parliament. the lord remember me for good under all these distractions.
