1749 August 9 (Wednesday). Rode up to Shrewsbury in my Chair, with Billy to have his Leg dress’d. When I return’d Mr. Daniel Forbush was here with my Horse which Mr. Harrington led to Boston for a Maid from Mrs. Clark — but the Endevour was frustrated. The woman could not be found. P.M. I went to the Meadow to see the last of the Haying there.
