Saturday, April 2 1757

At home all day. After breakfast carried up to Mr Vine’s some things for the audit… In the afternoon a great quantity of snow fell, but did not continue, it melting as it fell. Oh! how pleasant has this day been after what some of the last past have, they being spent in hurry and confusion, but this at home in my business and in reading. Oh! were I to choose my way of life, it should be a retired recluse life, making those about me happy if it were in my power.
