1766 January 28 (Tuesday). Elizabeth Whipple had 13 fitts (as Billy says) last Night. She has none a Days. Mr. Whitney brought home for me Two Bush. and 1/2 of Malt from Mr. Mathis’s. P.M. I rode to the South — Deacon Bonds, Mr. Kendals — Paid him in full and to his satisfaction for his Pork, yet gave him but 21d per pound; because it was generally but 20d at Boston as I was informed by many, about that Time, and it was sold for that in our own Neighbourhood. Went to Mr. Daniel Forbes’s — and Supped there. Called at Deacon Tainters in returning. Alas! I soon loose the pungent Thoughts which I have sometimes had of Death and Eternity. The Lord awaken me, and all round me!
