March 8, 1757

1757 March 8 (Tuesday).  Sent a Letter to Mr. Benjamin Lull by his son in Law Rogers.  N.B. had a troublesome Walk in the Evening from the widow Rogers’s whither I went to carry my Letter — it being Dark, muddy and lowery.  Near home struck my Leg against a stump and wounded my right Legg very sorrowfully which gave me great Uneasiness most of the Night.
