1766 November 15 (Saturday). Had of Mr. Morse half a Quarter of Beef. Weighed 37 lb. We are much at a Loss about wood; Mr. Tainters year being up, and the Town has not met to agree with another. But Deacon Tainter brings a Load and takes John with him to go and cut another which he brings from the high Way. Deacon Bond here and shews me what the Court has done this Session; especially as to Compensation to the sufferers etc. in the late Times.
