March. 15. my heart was refreshed in the good news of the Justice (,) my heart was earnest for him with god, and I know not in vain, the lord was good to me in the word and work of the Sabbath, god accept me therein, the lord good to us in many mercies, feared the smallpox in our town, the lord in mercy prevent it that it spread not. Tho. Garrad with me tempted to make away his child, the lord help him, that by sin he does not utterly undo himself.
