December 25, 1760

1760 December 25 (Thursday).  Went over to Mr. Parker.  Payed him 22£ for the Sheep and 6/ Interest.  Payed him also for 2 Gallons of Sperma Ceti Oyl, which came to a Dollar; and for a Tin Lamp, which was 1/4 of a Dollar.  To make him quiet in tending my Creatures I gave him gratis my part of the Sheep Pasture which he had wanted to hire of me for his sheep.  And promised to take my Sheep over to the New place.  N.B. My Daughters, Sarah and Suse were last night, much affected and made faint, by reason of a pot of Coals in their Bed Room.
