3. 4: I dispatched mine, and all the business entrusted on my hands at Courts. for which I bless god, Mr Cressener acquainted me that my Lord of Oxfords Chaplain was come to town and he thought about the school. Mr R.H. made some proffers in it, and I desired to observe god therein, but my own inclinations rather tend to lay it wholly by, desirous god would open some help to me in carrying on the work of the ministry.
