May 5, 1736

1736 May 5 (Wednesday).  A very pleasant, Warm Air — almost the first and the only Springlike Day — so Cold and melancholly has the Spring been.  Late p.m. Mr. John Tucker of Boston, pump Maker, came with his Tools to go to work for me; but he did not go to work this Eve.  Mr. Jonah Warrin came and wrought upon the Posts (See April 30) and with Davids Help half the Day or thereabouts, finished ‘em — above 60.  Ensign Maynard rode my Horse to Boston.
