1778 November 11 (Wednesday). This day as I suppose is the Time appointed for the Ordination of Mr. Ripley of Concord, but it’s Rainy and by Noon a very Severe Storm of Wind and Rain. Through Divine Favour we had wood brought yesterday by two of Capt. Maynard’s sons. He had sent none (that I know of) till now. But now we feel the Good of it; and are thankful.
