October 1, 1748

1748 October 1 (Saturday).  Cold Day.  Mr. Breck and Ballantine proceeded for Boston.  Dr. Gott din’d here.  P.M. Mr. Edwards Whipple brought home my young Cattle which came from Nichewoag: and receiv’d a Letter from the Church of Rutland to go to Council there.  My many avocations greatly perplex me.  May the Lord graciously Commiserate all my state!
