May 25, 1759

1759 May 25 (Friday).  Visit at Mr. Timothy Warrins.  Deacon Livermore with Banisters for my Stairs.  The young Women aforesaid are at work here.  Alexander goes with John Wood to get Sand.  My Perplexity very great about an Horse to go to Boston — because I am necessitated to go, and none will shew Compassion.  It sits very heavy upon Me.  Surely they have not that Affection which they ought to have!  Surely I deserve it not, through my own unprofitableness!  At Eve came Mr. Foster of Berwick and lodged here.
