1749 January 24 (Tuesday). Mrs. Maynard return’d home. Mrs. Forbush tarrys. The weather changes to a Snow Storm. Yet I rode to Mr. Joseph Knowltons after his son Jacob to hire him for the year. Heard there that Mr. Samuel Crosby dy’d last night, a considerable Loss! I was at Mr. Bellows’s, Mr. Samuel Fays, Mr. Greens, and Mr. Francis Whipple’s. My wife, at my return, much the Same as when I left her.
