July. 26. God good to me in many outward mercies, in all which my heart delights in him(.) this day we broke bread, the lord makes my heart desirous to cleave to him, in a way of duty, oh my soul is glad to tread in his paths and courts(.) my wife weak and fearful, god is her strong god and I trust will carry her through all her difficulty and trouble, to her comfort and mine, I do not find my body nor heart as true, and lively in gods worship, the lord in mercy help me,
