March 14, 1748

1748 March 14 (Monday).  I was somewhat late in the morning before I set out upon my journey.  Called at Captain Warrins to meet Mr. Ebenezer Chamberlin, the collector.  Was also hindered a little at Mr. Jacob Amsden’s.  Had one Lockhart’s company from Marlborough to Waltham.  Went to see Mr. Warham Williams[1] and lodged there.  It was raw cold ‘til evening and then snowed.  N.B. Fire burnt in the floor of Mr. Williams’s study, but was discovered as we sat in the lower room under it, and was soon put out.

[1]The minister of Waltham.
