August 5, 1747

1747 August 5 (Wednesday).  Very dry Time. Ebenezer to the Meadow for the Last of the Hay.  One very large Load. Mr. Edwards Whipple help’d him and work’d till night upon the Hay and Home, which a.m. I tend’d myself.  P.M. Mr. Martyn here, and tarry’d till Eve. Brother Hicks does not return from Cambridge yet, I fear what may be the Cause of his Stay.
