March. 10: God good to us in many outward mercies. this day I heard and then saw the youth openly playing at cat on the green, I went up routed them, their fathers sleeping in the chimney corner, lord heal through grace these disorders. my boys sheep lambed her lamb dead, lord how good were you to mine. lord open his heart by this providence, that minds nothing that good is. god good to me in the word where our Dear Friend H. was a hearer. a change of weather drying a little up the excessive moisture in the earth.
