March 25, 1780

1780 March 25 (Saturday).  Mr. Nathan Maynard junior brought one load of Wood, which my son Breck measured, and says is 77 feet.  But inasmuch as (to deal rightly) several loads of late have been of exceeding crooked wood, and this today has such a quantity of small wood I told my son I would be glad to have more allowance made on those accounts.
