April 1, 1752

1752 April 1 (Wednesday).  Rode to Mr. Gashetts about a breaking up Plough, but he was not at home.  In my way I call’d at Mr. Bonds — Mr. Martyn Pratts, Chaddocks, Dunlops, Charles Bruce, Bowmans, Harringtons etc.  N.B. Ebenezer here when I return’d and took home his Mare.  Ebenezer brought about 1/2 a Load of Swamp Hay from Eliezer Rice, who he had gratify’d with part of a Barrell of Cyder.
