April 13, 1752

1752 April 13 (Monday).  Old Mr. Dunlop came to work in my New Garden, to dig out the Roots which the plough has left, and prepare it for the Rake.  His son John also wrought for me.  They both came late.  John Singled Flax.  At Eve at Deacon Newtons — Justice Baker there also — now a bad Fever and is an ill man.  N.B. Mr. Maccarty[1] came to my House and lodg’d here.

[1]The Reverend Thaddeus Maccarty of Worcester.
