November 1, 1752

1752 November 1 (Wednesday).  A fine Day.  I rode abroad though my Arm is upon many Occasions thrown into great Pain.  Was at Esquire Baker’s; visit Mrs. Harrington and din’d there — at Deacon Forbush’s, Elijah Rice’s — visit Mr. Pierce’s Family — his Wife and son Seth sick — the latter very bad.  Mr. Pierce was my Company home, and I had some free conversation with him.  N.B. Lieutenant Tainter brought me a Load of Wood.  Mr. Moses Warrin another.
