September 28, 1750

1750 September 28 (Friday).  Rain Storm.  Under a great Disappointment having striven much Yesterday for men to digg in my Cellar, that Mr. Forbush might finish Stoning it, and might do the underpinning of the House and get ready for Mr. Newton to be about the Chimney — and I had provided Two, viz. Benjamin Whipple (of Hardwick) and Aaron Warrin.  Messrs. Benjamin and Noah How p.m. at boarding the New House, and Ebenezer with them.  Sam Bumpso diggs an Hour or Two before night in the Cellar.  At Eve Benjamin Whipple and his wife with their Children here.  We took up 3 Hives of Bees.  A great Frost this Evening.
