Sept: 16. Cool dry weather, and after hot, and then moist, fit for seed time, blessed be god, that gives us our seasons, oh that we knew the seasons of grace(,) this was the Sabbath my heart up to declare against mans sin, in the evil and danger of it, lord do you convince us all of the same, my heart very much disquieted for that evil that is abroad in the world, oh that and the plague of my heart would be an insupportable burden were not gods goodness an ease and support to my heart.
