Aug. 3. a misling morning, a Sabbath wherein my heart awakens for god to do good to souls that he may be glorified. my soul humbles itself before the Lord with hopes in his mercy. from whom I encourage my heart, to trust in him for all good, he will be my salvation Lord be so to poor John and my daughters; a very wet day and sad time(,) god good in his word to me giving me a view of some fitness for a better state.
