Aug: 19. God good to me and mine in outward mercies. my wifes throat well. our little froward child very thriving, a very sweet harvest time(.) the lord be praised for the covenant. with Noah. and that of christ shall be made good. my heart very unsatisfied in myself, preaching, all I do poor, empty(,) nothing. lord do not cast me out of your eyes but let me live in thy sight.
