1748 August 3 (Wednesday). Neighbour Baverick mow’d the last of my Grass at home, and gave me half the Day. I pay’d him 10 shillings old Tenor for the other half. A.M. I rode to most of the houses as far as Mr. Joseph Knowltons in order to get somebody to rake what was mow’d yesterday at the meadow and, to cart it home. Mr. Knowlton sent two sons to rake this afternoon.
