1752 April 10 (Friday). Receiv’d Two Letters per Mr. Winchester from Brother Samuel Parkman, dated the third Instant — one of them writ by Billy Bows, who with his sister Nabby and Cousen Sarah Tyley were inoculated on the second. As soon as I had read I burnt both the Letters. N.B. Mr. William Rogers and his wife apprehended and carry’d before Justice Liscomb for Stealing (as it is suspect’d) Flax out of Mr. Jonas Brighams Barn, and at Night the Man was committed to Jayl.
Samuel Lyscomb of Hopkinton, a justice of the peace.
