March 24, 1757

1757 March 24 (Thursday).  A fine Day, but a very winterish prospect.  Mr. Gale alone to Day also.  P.M. My little John, who has been several Times before delivered from Death, was remarkably Saved, though he fell from the Chamber down upon one of the Great Stones of the Kitchin Hearth.  All hearty Praise be given to the glorious God his preserver.  Walked up to Mr. Alphy Newton’s to buy Boards of his Brother Abner; and there were Capt. B. Wood and his Wife from Hopkinton, who I hear are about to take that old Place.
