1653 - From the Diary of Alexander Brodie of Brodie "At night I called for my daughter Grissel ; and, after sad and grave admonition, reproof and warning, she entred on a new engagement, as follows. [It is written and subscribed with her own hand.} " This night my Father carried me before God for my forgetting the resolutions and promises which I made lately to God. I did confess and take with my hainous guiltiness, and promised |yet again to bewail it and mourn for it before God ; in particular] I confess my . [Here she makes a particular enumeration of her sins.] This night I purposed against these things, and every one of them ; and will beseech the Lord's strength and grace for that effect, and that for my former dealing with him he would not forsake me, but would forgive and heal for his own name's sake. For this end I employ, and believe in, the Lord Jesus Christ for all-sufficient Grace, with- out whom I can do nothing : and, that this night may be remembred, and my renewed promises (L. L.) [I subscribe] this, that it may be a witness for ever against me in this world, and at the Day of Judgment in the World to come. GRISSEL BRODIE."
