1754 March 18 (Monday). I went over to Mr. Smith and talk with him — and inasmuch as he pretends that Mr. Boardman of Boston is ready to take off the Mortgage, he must go to him forthwith and do it, otherwise it will be too late for this Year. I think it also a great Wrong and hardship that Mr. Smiths Horse is kept in my Barn since our Hay is So Short and it is difficult for me to go for Supply otherwise. Visited at Mr. Whipples, both Houses. Mr. Edwards Whipple talks of helping me get Timber for a Kitchin. Ebenezer and his wife and Child here at Eve. Thunder and Lightening. They lodge here.
