March: 16: The Lord good to me, and mine in many mercies, Jane , and An . ill with colds nigh chin colds, I find it most in the nights, little in the days, the good lord for mercy sake pardon their sins, and heal their infirmities, the season calm, not much stirring about with us, but we expect notable contrivances this year at hand, we broke bread this day all our company roundly and comfortably together, I did not not find much income from god. but I found my heart inwardly warmed, and raised up to make mention of the kindness: and mercy of god in his covenant and Christ.
