February 13, 1773

1773 February 13 (Saturday).  Nigh night came Daniel Chamberlin to desire me to go to [Mrs. Bellows?] But it was So exceeding Cold, I could not think it my Duty to go at so extreme a season; and just before the Sabbath; as She was not able to converse, and I could not return this Evening against the Sharp wind, not could lodged there: But I had no Horse, and what the young man rode was a Colt which I could not venture to ride.
