December 29, 1774

1774 December 29 (Thursday).  The Snow is so very deep that one Hezekiah Haden with two strong Teams going to Boston was stopt at Deacon Woods, and cant get along with his Loads.  A Number of Neighbours come with their Teams to his help and break the way with great Difficulty.  Elias goes with my Oxen as far as Andrews’s.  Deacon Wood was in here, acquaints me with Capt. Brighams uneasiness with me that I don’t appoint a  Church Meeting — whereas we cannot be ready as yet for one.
