Aug: 16: God good to me, then when my heart is evil, and negligent in my ways towards him, oh pardon me for thy name sake, my cold very tedious, but who knows but there may be mercy in it, the season showery and god renews the face of the earth, the lord good to me in strength for the sabbath, but I was not careful to watch for it, lord I loath myself, pardon you me in thy christ I pray thee,
