September 2, 1751

1751 September 2 (Monday).  I sent Billy with a Team to the North-End-Meeting House for a Cyder screw made by Deacon Livermore[1] for me — one of those made by Woolly having Scal’d and Split so much that it is useless; and it is lodg’d at the North Meeting House, under the Care of Mr. Jeduthan Baldwin, who is at work there.  I rode after him least some Disaster Should befall him.  I din’d at Captain Eagers.  A.M. reading Ansons Voiage round the world by Walter.[2]  Ebenezer and Thomas mend the Fence of the Pasture at the Island and bring a milk Cow, and Two fatting Creatures to pasture there.
