In Norfolk : June 4th,1776

My tooth pained me all night, got up a little after 5. this
 morning and sent for one Reeves a man who draws 
Teeth in this Parish and about 7. he came and drew
 my Tooth but shockingly bad indeed, he broke away a
 great Piece of my Gum & broke one of the Fangs of the
 Tooth it gave me exquisite Pain all the Day after and
 my Face was swelled prodigiously in the Evening & much Pain.
 Very bad in much Pain the whole Day long -
 Gave the old Man that drew it however - 0 : 2 : 6
 He is too old I think to draw teeth, can't see very well -
