1752 October 31 (Tuesday). Mr. Forbush came last Night to the Other House, and hither this Morning — but hastens away to Boston (his wife being still there) and carrys with him John Barrett; he has Mr. Martyns Chair and my Mare. Ebenezer makes an Husking this Evening. I am but lame yet in my left Arm. And we are much put to ‘t for Wood, but we have some Loggs and we pick about and get one Thing and another. Yet it is difficult because the season is unusually Cold, and I am so infirm. But I desire to trust in the careful faithfull Providence of God!
