May 5, 1756

1756 May 5 (Wednesday).  Very Cold Winds.  Brother Hicks was here Yesterday, while I was absent, and left me a Message from Brother Champney of Cambridge, which because of my inability to fulfill putts me to much Trouble of mind.  P.M. Charles Rice junior works for me.  He and Billy (with my own Team) ploughs the rest of the Field by the Barn.
