July. 14: Goodly weather: which is the more thankfully owned by me, being sensible of the bad season at first. god gave me a great heart of prayer for dry weather. and he has given a great answer of prayer: I was very ill divers days but god has shown me mercy in my health and ease, and I will enlarge my heart in duty and service to him and his, I have been hindered from taking my season. my leg not so swollen as at some times, nor sore, nor painful.
