Jan. 26. 1681
Sensible this year entered me into my 66 year, read this day in course Deut. 30.20 god is my life and obedience the way of life. there is nothing more pleasant than cleaving to god and to him I devote my soul, to love him and trust in him, and to take more heed to please him(.) hitherto a moist windy, open winter, tree springing and budding: Mr Androws ill. and this day died which will occasion much trouble to me, but as my days and so I hope my strength shall be.
