January 2, 1750

1750 January 2 (Tuesday).  Mr. Edward Goddard here in the Morning.  The Society of Young Men came and Cut Wood for me, viz. Nathan Maynard, Daniel How, Jonas Bradish, Aaron Warrin by proxy scil Josiah Walker, Merodach Smith, Daniel Cook, Phinehas Maynard, Moses Warrin, Joseph Grout junior — but there was no other Team than my own which was manag’d by my son part of the Day — but it being warm and pleasant weather the Snow became at length too soft and sticky so that he left off Sledding.  P.M. Sam Bumpso came to Cutt.  At Evening we Sang.  May God increase all grace and Goodness in them and make them all to be rich Blessings in their Generation!
