March 30, 1726

1726 March 30 (Wednesday).  No whither can one turn but the Calamity of the times are felt, Everyone Complaining and Lamenting.  My Neighbor Clark though a foreigner I could not but Commiserate, and I actually did put forth Myself to my utmost to succour him Every Way, By Grain, Hay, keeping Creatures, Money, etc.  O Miserere Deus!  Corn was Sold at Oxford for 8 shillings per Bushel, and in other places.
