December 27, 1758

1758 December 27 (Wednesday).  Tedious winter like Season.  Rains and freezes So that it is very difficult stirring.  Mr. Joseph Gamel dined here: he is come to live in this Town, at the Widow Rogers’s.  At Eve Mr. Daniel Forb. here.  We are full of the News from the Ohio — giving Thanks that DuQuesne is in our Hands, though we mourn on account of French Cruelty there.
