November 23, 1767

1767 November 23 (Monday).  Read Dr. Burnetts Theory Vol. 2.  Am more and more affected with the Authors surprizing stretch of Genius — but most with the very solemn Subject.  N.B. Lt. Baker brings a Load of Wood with my Cattle in his Team; it being difficult stirring in the snow.  This Day he begins his Year of getting my Wood.  N.B. Lt. Baker tells me Mr. Beeton refused to let him go through the place which I sold to Capt. Maynard, although I have reserved the Liberty of Passage through it, for Team or Teams: and it is expressed in my Deed to Maynard.  This may breed Trouble.
