March. 14. God good in manifold mercies. heard of my childrens welfare, my wife after a sick vomiting fit, grows better. god good in his word to my soul make me a son of peace

For some time money very scarce, yet my experience how god has enabled to pay Johns 50li. when considerable sums failed obliges me to thankfulness for that mercy. and a patient waiting on god to provide and carry me through in all the difficulties I do or shall meet with; yes and I desire to press my own heart, and children to go about all their affairs in a holy confidence, god will be with them and prosper them in the accomplishment of them.
