November 13, 1740

1740 November 13 (Thursday).  Storm of Snow, very Cold, and the Meeting House very cold and uncomfortable.  Several of the Casements down and others very loose and open.  I Spake to the people with some Resentment because I had twice Spoken in Private without Effect.  I preach’d, though through much Difficulty, on Eph. 5.20.  It continues to Snow, and is a very Difficult, Cold Time.  My Cattle out yet.
