1749 January 7 (Saturday). Very Cold. Mr. Solomon Woods came — brought a pair of Bellows from Cambridge and mended ‘em. Din’d here. P.M. Mrs. Forbush (Phinehas’ Widow) here til now. She had my mare to ride home, and went for me to Mr. Daniel Hardys to get me some money, he being Collector of the money granted for the last Year, and though he has had the Rates from Month to Month, yet he brings me none. Nathan Knowlton does not come as I expected.
