1764 December 13 (Thursday). A very Cold Morning but left Mr. Martyn, having delivered him 2 Dollars from Mr. McAllister for Lime. Went to Mr. Michaels shop and bought of him 6 lbs. of Cotton @ 18/ old tenor per pound. Called at several Houses of my own Parish. Dined at Capt. Maynards but without him, he being sick o’ Bed. I got home safely though my Mare had two unhappy Falls, which made me dismount. One Yesterday, the other to Day: but, through divine Goodness, without any Hurt. Mr. J. Wood Examined.
