November 2, 1749

1749 November 2 (Thursday).  Mrs. Hitty Brigham here again.  Neigbhour Rutherford after Dinner left us, generously refusing to take anything for his Pains in teaching Lucy to weave Garters.  Molly return’d from Upton and Mrs. Warrin with her.  P.M. my wife and I rode in the Chair to the Private Meeting at Mr. Francis Whipples.  I preach’d from Isa. 55.7.  After Supper there, Lieutenant Tainter came home with us.  The Air pritty Cold.  The setting in of the Cold thus makes me very sollicitous and Concern’d about Keeping for my Stock.  But I confide in Him who made the Meal in the Barrell and the Oyl in the Cruse last, and provid’d so much for us in the season past, beyond our Fears will Still extend his Care of us and bless our Store as he has done before.
