1751 September 2 (Monday). I sent Billy with a Team to the North-End-Meeting House for a Cyder screw made by Deacon Livermore 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. Ebenezer and Thomas mend the Fence of the Pasture at the Island and bring a milk Cow, and Two fatting Creatures to pasture there.
