1738 August 2 (Wednesday). Moss return’d from Sutton very Early this morning — laid down to Sleep but went to work afternoon. N.B. Jonathan Forbush junior and Simon Tainter junior came very kindly and gave me a Days work each of them in mowing at my Meadow. The widow Rice (heretofore Oake) here. P.M. I rode over to the North Side of the Town and visited Seven Familys, particularly Silas Fay who buried a Still born child yesterday. My son Ebenezer has a bad Swelling behind his Ear. Dr. Matthews call’d in, accidentally.
The widow of Thomas Rice, formerly Mary Oakes.
Dr. John Matthews, the physician of Marlborough.
