February 12, 1777

1777 February 12 (Wednesday).  Though it was fair Weather, yet too Cold and rough, for me to venture to go to Marlborough Fast; nor could I have an Horse: The mare (Brecks) of Necessity goes in the Team to sled Wood.  Miss Nabby Woods has worked here; this is now the 3d Day in altering and preparing Elias’s Cloths — goes home this Evening.  Mr. B. Bradshaw and his Brother Parkman came and lodge here.  Capt. Maynard and his wife make us a Visit.
