Through the Patience and Longsuffering of God I have arrived at the Conclusion of another Year!  Blessed be His glorious Name for all His Goodness.  May the various Providences, Changes, [Disquietments?], Losses, I have been exercised by in the Course of this year, be sanctifyed to me and mine!  And O may I be prepared for the Day, the Hour, which is to Close my Life!
