December 18, 1765

1765 December 18 (Wednesday).  Mr. Kendal brings 122 lbs. of Pork.  It is to be 2/ per lb. unless it is less at Boston — for I offer him market Price at Boston, deducting 2d per lb. for Transport.  Mr. Nurse makes a little Door for me at the Barn, out of the Barnside into the Hovell.  He and Mr. Kendal dine here.  The storm is so vehement at Night I can’t but Pity poor exposed Creatures, especially Sailors; as Nine and a Boy perished in the late Storm on the 3d and 4th.
