February 19, 1750

1750 February 19 (Monday).  Aaron Warrin watch’d last Night with Ebenezer who we hope is through Gods great Mercy a little better.  Neighbours Edwards Whipple and Eleazer Williams came and kindly sledded wood.  It was the more kind and seasonable as it proved a considerable stormy Time p.m. yet they were not beat off, but got to the Door 10 Turns, the wood being already Cut to their Hands.  They din’d with us, as did Mr. Stone of Southborough who kindly came to see us.  The Snow prevail’d pritty much towards Eve.  It put us in Mind of the Great Snow storm which came this Day 33 Years agoe.  Ebenezer Spitts bloody matter to a greater Degree.  My Son William taken ill, having took Cold Yesterday (most probably) in coming from Meeting.  Mr. Daniel Hardy, Collector for the last Year, paid me the last of what he was to gather for my Sallery and support for the Year past.
