October 6, 1737

1737 October 6 (Thursday).  N.B. I set out from Cambridge before Day — got to Harrington’s before sun rising from there first at sunrise, but did not get up to Westb. till nigh one.  Visited Hannah Bond, who lay sick at Capt. Forbush.[1]  After that dined at Home.  Young men came to gather my Corn.  Set them to work.


Went to the private meeting at Mr. Townsend’s[2] and preached on 2 Pet. 1.10.  Visited Hannah Bond again.  About 18 or 20 hands husked out all my Corn.  N.B. In my absence Winter Apples gathered in.
