1751 September 17 (Tuesday). Neighbour Barns Sign’d a Deed for 4 Acres of Swamp and Upland joining to my old place: and paid him 27 Dollars for it. Hannah Pratt, our Nurse went away. I went over to Neighbour Hows again about Bricks. Job Cushing junior there from Day to Day with 3 Teams — so that I cannot be Supply’d — for the Kiln turns out poorly, many being broke. Both Cushing and I pick’d out many halves. The whole ones 15/ per Hundred. At Night Rain — in the Rain and Dark came Mr. William Winter of Boston, and Dr. Parkmans Widow, and Mr. Henry Newhall’s Wife — Two Chairs. Not having got our Beds from t’other House I was oblig’d to go with Mr. Winter to Mr. Ebenezer Rice’s and we lodg’d there.
