March. 17. God good to me and mine, in many outward mercies, for which my soul does heartily bless his name, my little Bettie yet continues ill, god good to me in his word and worship, lord make my heart good for I am yours, this day fair, few grey peas sown, and very few oats, [Wet March] yet god will remember his covenant to and with Noah, and will do us good in his due time. children very profane their parents sit at home, and they play in the streets openly at cat and other sports.
