4: In the midst of all provisions I am to make for my children. I was forced to help her with 4li. to pay Tho: which she had in her prudence scored up by 1d. and ob. my son had a 100li. in my hand. and that in her wise anger he must pay me in rather than allow me some small matter for it, until I have paid 60li. I owe of it. I bless god for my patience and kindness, under all I meet with. [I trust thee oh Lord to bless me]
