Ap: 27. God good to me and mine in many outward businesses, for which I bless his name, the season indifferent good for grass, but there are wonderful showers about, on 19. Feb. when Corbett . Barkstead and Okey were executed at Tiburne, Okey said that prophaneness was at such a height that if true as said England could not stand 3 years. the Court looked on this with a jeer. indeed man knows not tomorrow. its not for us to prophesy. but when our sins deserve a curse, its wisdom to hear, fear and repent. the Lords day is most sadly profaned in all places, lord look on and help.
