April 12, 1739

1739 April 12 (Thursday).  Jotham Maynard work’d another half Day.  Powder hill on Blaze, in a dry Time and an high Wind.  The Fire broke out of Brother Hicks’s Ground and burnt me up all the Fence upon the South and the north and north East, although the wind was very strong at South and south West.  I preach’d the Lecture on Rev. 3.1 latter part.  N.B. Mr. Tainter brought up from Cambridge a 3 year old Heifer which I bought of Brother Champney for 10£.
