The King of Prussia’s dominions are [described at extraordinary length]… The above was taken from The Gentleman’s Magazine for September, 1744. At home all day but not busy… Rec’d of James Awcock 4/6 in full and paid him 3d for some parsnips. In the evening Thomas Davy here, to whom I read the 2nd of Tillotson’s sermons, I think this to have been as cold a day as I ever knew, and I believe the frost has not been totally out of the ground these 5 weeks.
