Dear diary ,
15th May 1657 .
It ' s 15th May , 10 o ' clock . Pinsk is taken by a Cossak division by the command of Jan Tichy . I together with Maffon are the most threatened because we ' re priests and Cossaks don ' t like Christians . We are leaving the town in a hurry . We ' re afraid of it . We have to hide in the surrounding villages . We ' re scared every day . Maffon is caught in the Horodec by the Zieleniecki squad and martyred at once . When I find out about it , it takes my breath away . I don ' t know what I should do . I decide to escape . I with the help of good people I take refuge in Janow ( 30 kilometers from Pinsk ). I ' m hungry and thirsty , but I can ' t think about it now . From Janow I go to the village of Peredil . On 16th May troops entered Janow and murder Poles and Jews . They ask about me . When they find out I ' m in Peredil they take with them Jakub Czetwerynka guide . At the request of the villagers , who find out that I ' m wanted , I escape in a borrowed cart . When I arrive to Mogilno I meet a squad of soldiers .

It is really nice and comfortable . And the atmosphere in this town is amazing ! You don ’ t have to do anything to feel great , just breath this clean air . There are many paths for people willing to walk . It is possible to admire nature and take sights . The forest is full of animals .
