1757 April 18 (Monday). Deacon Kimbal came to plaister my Bedroom, Entry etc. Amon Blanc worked for me — partly in the Garden and partly tending the Mason. P.M. Mr. Dunlop in the Garden, and p.m. Mrs. Mary Nurse at work, making Breeches for Alex. and Samuel. So many different persons at work proves an unwelcome Avocation at Such a Time as this.
