November 25, 1752

1752 November 25 (Saturday).  But may God be pleas’d to grant me a Suitable Frame of Temper under all his Dealings with Me and Mine!  At Eve came Three of our Young Kinswomen, viz. Ruth, Hannah and Elizabeth Hicks[1] from Salem and Cambridge in their return Home to Sutton; and lodge here.  N.B. This is the first Night of our tying up Cattle in my New Barn.  We now put up three Cows.
