1779 December 29 (Wednesday). A very dismal morning. Storm continues till about noon. Snow-Banks very high nigh my saddle-house 6 feet high. Roads blocked up. What can have become of poor Mr. Goddard, who proposed to set out with Wife and children etc. on his great Journey to Walpole, has sold at Shrewsbury and would now move. My son Breck had also designed to go in a double Sleigh to Ashburnham, but no Team nor Sleigh can Stir. How wonderful the Works of the Great God!
