Jan: 26: 1661. my 46 year enters.

Jan: 26: God good to me in many mercies, my little Mary very ill with an ague my soul waits on god for her health, and recovery out of it. this day entered my 46. year, god has been good to me in the days past and will in those are to come, and my saved soul shall praise him(.) good was god to me in the word, it was a very wintery day, and a little fluttering snow lay on the ground, I looked on it as a merciful answer of prayer, god give us more such days if it be thy will.
