25. Justice Harlakenden returned to see us at Colne, blessed be god for him, the lord make him a living blessing, his life was given to me through prayer in the name of Christ, its to me oh lord a pledge of thy love, oh teach me to serve thee most unfeignedly, he told me how he thought when he saw the glory of heaven, the confusion that Cromwell was in and his Court being forsaken of the people. - this day god watched over my An in the street, who very narrowly escaped the wheel of the priory cart.
