8: This day was a day I had thought of as the bound within which some great action would be, the throning the protector really done; he will come up higher in the season of it, I saw a letter from Major Haines , intimating real apprehensions of the Cavalier attempts; said the prince on the seas. Mr Barnardiston dined with me, at night I dreamed Christ born in a stable as being the redeemer of man, and beast out of their bondage by the fall.
