February 7, 1776

1776 February 7 (Wednesday).  Notwithstanding the Cold I walked to Neighbour Thaddeus Warrins, and (though with some Difficulty) prevailed with him and Samuel Williams to go tomorrow to Cutting and Sledding Wood.  Went to Mr. Nurse’s also to reckon with him for mending my Cart and shooing my Sled.  24/ for one; 4/6 only for the other — 5/ also for Bows and soals for Cattle.  P.M. and Eve Nanny Beeton with her Kinswoman Miss Polly Ayres and a Friend of hers, were here.  Miss Polly takes the Profile of the Faces of Breck, Samuel, Sally, Sophy, Hannah and Elias.  [blot]
