February 5, 1750

1750 February 5 (Monday).  Morning.  Ebenezer return’d my Horse to Mr. Jonathan Fays to be kept there again.  Mr. Whitney came to discourse with me about the precinct Affair.  N.B. they adjourn’d their late meeting to February 13 as I am inform’d.  Mr. Whitney seems much dispos’d for Peace, while others, it seems, are in Ruffle especially Some in the South East Corner.  The Weather clears up very Cold, and it grows a distressing Time among people, respecting their Cattle; Hay being So very Short, there is reason for much Concern, — but must Confide in God.
