February 12, 1756

1756 February 12 (Thursday).  Am in much Concern what to do in providing for my son William, it being high time he Should be put out an Apprentice since I can’t (as I Should much rather choose) give him a Liberal Education.  At Eve Lt. Tainter brings various Things from Boston for us: particularly 20£ of Wool.  N.B. he has found a Purse on the Road with a Quantity of money both silver and Gold.
