March 8, 1781

1781 March 8 (Thursday).  We were perplexed about one of the Sheep that is lost in the Snow storm.  All our Searching after it is in Vain.  Stephen Maynard brings home Mr. Allens 5 Leggs and 2 Chops of Bacon.  I send to Deacon Hawes Mr. Cranch’s Vol. 5 (F and part of G) of Biographical Dictionary, also a Letter to my Son William and another to Mr. Quincy.
