Jan: 15: God good to us in our outward mercies, his answer of prayer in the welfare of my son is a providence greatly affects my heart, the season very vehemently cold, this hard weather has continued from Novemb: 11. until now which is above 9 weeks, and god knows how much longer, snow lying on the ground all this time, and sometimes very deep, god good to me this day in the word, my heart very sensible of gods goodness in the present moderation of men in public place. General Monck is coming up to London, we shall see to what intent, god remember his in mercy and all shall be well.
