17. One John Chrismas a miller in our town, whose parents were godly, and one in a way of doing well, but his heart leading him to tipple and game, and his wife being sharp to him, he got what he could together, and left her, his brother brought him home, but about a week after he was sick of the pox and died, a warning not to go out of gods way.
