December 16, 1736

1736 December 16 (Thursday).  Good Weather.  It has been So great a Thaw that the Earth is very open again.  David finished a new Box for my Books.  P.M. he wrought for Neighbour William Rogers junior.[1]  At Evening Jotham Maynard, David Batherick and Deborah Ward in a Contest.  N.B. Sent my Horse by Mr. Tainter to Waterton for Lydia Cutting.  At Night it grew very Cold.
