May. 17. God good to us in our outward mercies, the liberty of gods worship is yet afforded me, and mine in particular, although Mr Layfield tells me (who was judge at the visitation) that I am suspended, gods will be done, I am a poor useless creature, and if god will have me laid by his will be done. I submit with patient quietness, but my freedom I rather desire.
