Aug. 8: This day giving the blessing I abruptly gave over in the middle, thinking I was doing it a second time so weak and frail is my memory from my heedlessness, doing things with no strength, not drawing out in speech things I have thoroughly digested and concocted, the lord make me sensible of my evil therein and pardon it to me in Christ Jesus. god good to me in many outward mercies, my 2 little ones abroad with me this day, the lord be in all things a blessing unto us.
