Ap: 9. God good in outward mercies, a gallant seed time. lord remember us with rain in season(,) the sky threatens a drought. the lord can command plenty.

[Estate:] When I come to view my estate expenses are 141li.4s.9d. receipts. 139li.4s.8d. loss. 2li.1d. and some debts less than last year. I cannot say I either lose and gain directly. yet my thoughts are my outward estate will this year appear to better. god prosper my soul.
