December 15, 1769

1769 December 15 (Friday).  Sent John with a Yoke of Oxen to assist Mr. Fessenden in getting a Log to Mill.  (It is instead of a Log which he cut upon the Ministerial Lot and improved for Plank which he sold to Lt. Baker.)  This succeeded no further than that John cutt down a great black Oake, and Mr. Fessenden sends word, that he will come when there shall be Snow.  I visited at Neighbour Arnolds, all of them somewhat better.  D.G.
