May 12, 1752

1752 May 12 (Tuesday).  Mr. Zebulon Rice and Samuel at the Frame.  There came also Mr. Phinehas Hardy and Mr. Simon Tainter, and gave me a Day’s Work at it.  There has been some prospects of Rain; but the most was a Fog or Mist and went off the Cold Raw Weather.  Mr. Stephen Maynard here, but without his Account that we might reckon, though I have taken unwearied pains to obtain it.  Mr. Batheric and Benjamin How with Ebenezer hew the Principals and Thomas brings 10 of them over.
