May 6, 1756

1756 May 6 (Thursday).  Lt. Jonas Brigham undertook the Moving of his biggest Barn, of 50 feet.  At his Desire I was there and Supped with them but the Barn was moved but part of the Way.  Very Cold Winds; my Health was much exposed; but I chiefly regretted the Loss of my Time, a great deal of which might have been improved much better otherwhere.
