December 27, 1768

1768 December 27 (Tuesday).  Having last Evening brought home a Gander which I have bought for 15/ of Dr. Hawes, this morning I went to Lt. Bakers and got a Goose, which he gave me; and likewise an Arm full (5 1/2 lbs.) of Tobacco which he has brought from Providence and Sells at 3/ per lb.  Mr. George Smith is here at Dinner Time, and he eats with us.  Old Mr. Seth Morse here; but alas!  in poor Trim.  P.M. Mrs. P________ and I ride in the Sleigh to See Capt. Jonas Brigham, and his Wife and Family: but Captain was not at Home.  Dr. Hawes and his Wife there.
