May. 15. The season very dry, the drought great. god has yet visited our fields with rain beyond the portion of others blessed be his name, our daily dependence must be on him, and in all my straits, I trust him and lean myself upon him, and he will provide: god good to me in the liberty of his holy day, and in mercy accept me and do me good(.) heard hopefully of the recovery of my Cousin Hurrill for which mercy I returned god thanks.
