9. sent Mr W: Hauksbee his books to his brother Richard by Nicholas Hurrell , received in good store of monies which enabled me to pay all my debts. Dr Pullein sent me an offer to procure me the school, if I would help him to his living, I had no desire thereto, my tenant Fisher was paying me 15li. I fear its rather a temptation than a providence, yet Mr R.H. jun: will consult about it.

me a good day in prayer at the priory . oh what a mercy it is to have a god to have recourse to in all states, such a friend is a comfort indeed
