1742 February 20 (Saturday). Took a grievous Cold in the Afternoon by Shaving my Head somewhat too high. I know of no other Method whereby I was exposed. Mr. Jenison was at great Pains to go over to the North side upon Racketts leaving the School for to Day wholly to my Ebenezer.
Ebenezer Parkman, Jr., son of Ebenezer and Mary (Champney) Parkman, b. Aug. 20, 1727.
