Friday, December 1 1758

About 6:50 I walked over to Mr Tester’s at Waldron where I met Mr Mason, and from thence we went out and surveyed part of a farm rented by Tester of Rose Fuller Esq. I came home sbout 5:35. My family at home in my absence dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, as did I, when I came home, on some bread and cheese, having neither eaten nor drunk since my departure from home (unless it was 4 dishes of tea). A very cold sharp air; in the evening a thick rime came over.
