October 9, 1740

1740 October 9 (Thursday).  In great perplexity in the fore part of the Day by Reason of the Cattle and Hoggs breaking in upon my few Apples, tossing about the piles of Stalks, etc.  Old Mr. Maynard at my urgent request Sent his son Ebenezer who with his Cousens Team carted the Stalks into the Barn and the Apples over to Mr. Hows Mill.  Mr. Cushing preach’d my Lecture on Luke 16.11, 2 last words.  Baines and Warrin work’d at the well, Marritts arm being sprain’d.  Husk’d at Eve, but my wife not well.
