1748 March 19 (Saturday). As I returned home I called at Mr. Dix’s (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 at Sudbury. Called also at Mr. Darling’s. 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!
