14. I married Mary Potter late my maid to Jo: Penhacke , and it grieved me not to deal bountifully with her, my heart sad to see her match to a person that minds not god, nor likely to be good husband. from there my wife went down to Mrs H , who was safely, quickly and easily delivered of a son , and baptised the next day the lord good to her notwithstanding her fears, and this was an encouragement to her to trust in god in further fears. this son is their heir, lord let it be yours.
