1749 November 30 (Thursday). I have receiv’d no message from the Precinct. P.M. I rode over to Deacon Newtons to discourse with him about hiring part of his House, but he was not at Home. While I sat there Esq. Baker came in. After some Discourse we walk’d over to Neighbour Abner Newtons. Our Discourse there was also about my moving if I could find any Convenient House. Call’d at Merchant Rice’s at Eve to see his sick Child. Rode around to Mr. Eliezer Rice’s and left my Young Horse with him to be kept. The Season looks at present very terrible. Tight Shut up with Snow and Some Days very Cold. It fills many (I suppose) with Concern. But we must remember Jehovah.
