1748 July 1 (Friday). Bright Day. Air cooler much than of late. Thomas Rogers came to hilling along with Ebenezer the forenoon for Josephs work for his Brother John. I was oblig’d to turn out and tend Hay, and pole from some distance for notwithstanding what I said yesterday nobody came to work for me. Some rain towards Eve. Deacon Sparhawk of Cambridge came to see us and lodg’d here.
