19. I baptised 2 boys of 3 years old and another infant, one boy wisemans broke my heart to see his desire to be baptised, friends promised to see him brought up in the faith of Jesus Christ, lord the love of thy name was on my heart in this doing. I had a good journey to Pedmarsh, visited Mrs Borough , I find god very merciful in his provision for her, a great encouragement to faith, I gave her 5s. and I served Christ in it.
