March 20, 1772

1772 March 20 (Friday).  Mr. Phinehas Maynard, nigh 43 year old, was buryed though it was a very great Storm of Snow.  Lt. Baker came and carryed me in his Sleigh.  The Assembly was great at the House of Mourning.  I had some Freedom in Speaking and in Prayer.  May God accept my feeble Attempts!  Breck has finished his school and is returned home.  The Season is uncommonly tedious, tempestuous and Snowing hard upon the great Body of Snow which is already on the Earth.  The Lord prepare us for His Will, and extend Compassion to the Poor!
