September 21, 1751

1751 September 21 (Saturday).  A great Frost last Night.  My Mind much taken off with Neighbour Rice’s Conduct last Night, which was the more to my perplexing as I am thereby So much hinder’d in my Preparations for the Sabbath.  Out of wood — and no where to go to get any — forc’d to pick up, round about the House.  Have taken Cold and have a grievous Pain in my back.
