March 19, 1748

1748 March 19 (Saturday).  As I returned home I called at Mr. Dix’s[1] (who married Sarah Bond) and was well entertained with smelts and he bountifully sent up several dozen to my wife.  Was at Mrs. Beckky Walkers and I dined at Mr. Paterson’s[2] at Sudbury.  Called also at Mr. Darling’s.[3]  Very heavy riding and breaking through the deep snow from Marlborough home but arrived well and found my house in health and peace.  Blest be God!
