1749 November 25 (Saturday). A very Cold Night, and this morning very sharp. Captain Maynard sent Joshua Winchester (who lives with him) to Cut Wood at the Door and assist Billy about the Creatures. At Eve Ebenezer came home, having had a tedious Journey to Boston and Concord: he came from Concord to Day. N.B. a Letter from Thomas of the abusive Detractions of Mr. Williams of Marlborough at Jones’s Tavern at Concord. From Mr. Whiting Fullers Worthys.
