15. This day was the first day I was at home since my scholars were dismissed and I set it apart to humble my soul before god for all my sins in my relations, to seek to god to pardon in christ. to beg his presence in my studies, ministry, his blessing on my little ones in their education and course of life, and that the lord would provide for me, and mine upon whose love, and care I rule myself, trusting I shall yet praise him.
