1726 March 11 (Friday). Captain Brigham came in and gave us all an Invitation to Dinner with his Troop the last Tuesday of this Month. When we had din’d we left Mr. Brecks. I return’d home by way of Deacon Rices. It was most Tedious Riding by the breaking in of the Horse. We were run into some Difficulty about going to Mill through it being So long Stormy. But William Clark on the 12th went for us. Neighbor Clark brought Three Cows and Mr. Oliver Ward an Horse to my Barn.
