1751 September 21 (Saturday). A great Frost last Night. My Mind much taken off with Neighbour Rice’s Conduct last Night, which was the more to my perplexing as I am thereby So much hinder’d in my Preparations for the Sabbath. Out of wood — and no where to go to get any — forc’d to pick up, round about the House. Have taken Cold and have a grievous Pain in my back.
