1748 December 14 (Wednesday). Drizly — but I pursued my Journey. Din’d at Captain Tainters at Watertown. Went to Deacon Whittemores to see what he had done about a Chair: it Rain’d harder, yet I went to Charleston and over the Ferry in the Dark and Rain with my young Horse that had never been in a Boat before. Hasten’d up to my Kinsman Olivers — Supp’d at Captain Davenport Walkers, but lodg’d at Olivers and had my Horse kept there. Was not well, being kept up late after so much fatigue.
