8: This day, my dear son Thomas rode towards London, to be an apprentice, the god of heaven be with him, and merciful to him, and give him a heart to fear him, and make him industrious, I sent him away as privately as might be in regard of his former return, and Kendals attempt to arrest him(,) lord let mans naughtiness turn to my good.
