1782 August 31 (Saturday). My Son Samuel has Sent me a Box of hollond Pipes, containing two Dozen which arrived safe. This morning was unusually foggy. It was so thick that we could not see at Scarcely a Rod or two distance. But though surprizing for awhile we concluded at length, it was caused chiefly by a Coal-Pit; yet as far as Mr. Ebenezer Forbush’s. Two young Kinsfolks Master William Bowes Bradford and his Sister Miss Betsy, arrived from Boston, to make us a Visit. N.B. Am informed that Neighbour Caleb Harrington having Set Fire to some part of his Meadow, it ran and spread.
