1752 November 21 (Tuesday). Esquire Baker here. Informs me that he has paid Captain Chandler of Worcester 20£, 13.4, Lawful money, for me. It being for 1000 Clabboards which I bought of him last year. He Signifys to me at the Same Time that Captain Chandler express’d uneasiness at my long Delay. I gave Esquire Baker a note til the first of next April. Sometimes rainy. The Weather exceeding windy — Sour — and therefore So uncomfortable that I am much confin’d whereas I had otherwise gone to t’other House to See how Billy Conducts there, or to Mr. Pierce’s seeing another, Francis, lies now Sick among them — Five, in all, now Sick. May God be mercifull to them. At Eve came Mr. Marrit of Cambridge, and smok’d a pipe with me, but he lodg’d I suppose at Justice Bakers.
