4: 5: These days by a very strange and wonderful providence of god I agreed for the farm on the Green with the Nevils , and had an estate in all the copyhold, very lovingly and quietly. it was a mercy god wrought out for me, it was his doing, I was lost in my endeavours and could do nothing. then he undertook it, in mercy I hope. - he is my own god, and through him I will seek his honour in loving and serving him
