December 26, 1745

1745 December 26 (Thursday).  Though it was last night a most Clear and bright Night yet this Morn was thick Cloudy, and anon it snow’d; and it prov’d a Stormy Day.  Wrote Mr. Bliss a Letter and sent it to Captain Fays by my son Thomme.  N.B. Mr. Williams here while I wrote it.  P.M. Justice Baker here, enquiring after a Colt, which he thought might probably strole away last night after me as I pass’d by his House, but I saw none.
