April 3, 1777

1777 April 3 (Thursday).  Breck went up again for the Oxen — but they were gone.  However, he bought, and paid for, another pair, of Mr. Elnathan Pratt.  They are Six years old — of Six foot Dimensions.  Price £17.10.  Nanny Beeton still with us, and lodges here.


Sophy and Hannah, I am informed, are inoculated this evening, by Dr. Hawes.  I could not resist their Importunity.  May God be gracious to us all, as the Matter now requires!
