November 5, 1750

1750 November 5 (Monday).  Was early at the New House.  Messrs. Newton, Forbush and tended as before, but by reason of the Cold make Slow Work.  Rode over to Mr. Jonathan Forbush’s to see his Sick Children.  Widow Newton gave me Alpheus’s digging and Carting Six Load of Clay: and this afternoon he goes with a Yoke of Oxen and assists Ebenezer in digging and Carting 3 Load more.  Towards Eve I visited Mr. Beeman who is very bad.  Was also at Mr. Warrins to See Daniel — in returning home I call’d at Mr. Bathericks.
