June. 6. God good to us in outward mercies as also in the season, which was drying and this evening very clear. I blessed god for the great abatement of the sickness in London bills being about the ordinary number, I prayed heartily for a good season, the lord was good to me in the word of repentance this day preached, the lord in much mercy accept me, and do me and mine good.

Henceforward lord help me not to forget the condition of my son Thomas in my daily prayers, that you would choose his Mr trade, and bless him in his way.
