1747 January 7 (Wednesday). Cold for some Days past — today Clear, Windy, Cold. Mr. Warrin took away the oxen he bought last night. My sons thrashing Rye. The Day appointed for the Ordination of Mr. Reed over the second Church in Framingham. But I kept at home for I fear what Grounds they go upon. It grew very Cold especially towards night.
