November 14, 1759

1759 November 14 (Wednesday).  I send a Letter to Cousen Coarser on the Death of her only sister, by Mr. Daniel Forbush’s Wife.  Alex spends the Chief of the Day in trying to get a Cart and Oxen to bring over the rest of my Corn from t’other House, but returns disappointed and Grieved.  P.M. Capt. Wood and his Wife came and with them Dr. Wilson and his Wife and young Mr. Barrett and his.  At Eve Mr. Benjamin Tainter and his wife who have come up from Boston where She has been for a while, for her Health.  I am filled with fears of the Rheumatism’s prevailing; for at night I had such Pain in my left Knee as obliged me to limp; nor are my Hands free.
