Feb: 20: God good to me in outward mercies in my business, for which I praise him, oh prosper soul and body. the season cheerful, god is good to my seed in their health when under rebukes, I gathered this day to rebuild a church. 11s.1d. oh how lowly charity goes on such errands, though I pressed the work and exampled it, the lord good to me in my spirit more free from roving vanities, not set on the world, not taken off from my studies, the lord make me a blessing, and in anything may be on my hand I pray thee prosper it to me for Christs sake
