1749 July 1 (Saturday). Yesterday and the Day before when I was at Hopkinton there was considerable said in Conversation, of poor Mr. Woodwell that went to Canada for his Daughter: fearing he was lost — but last Night he came to Captain Maynards and this morning was at my House. But his Daughter was not with him: he had not obtain’d as yet, her Redemption. At Eve came Ebenezer and Forbush in my Chair, drawn by Lieutenant Tainters Horse, from Cambridge, Having been gone 10 working Days: but no Evil had befallen him as I began to fear there had. An Hot and very drying Day. Corn curls pritty much. Every Thing looks very languishing but English Grain.
