1754 March 27 (Wednesday). Mr. Ebenezer Rice levys an Execution on Mr. Abraham Smith to the value of an hundred Twenty odd Pounds old Tenor in behalf of one of the Hitchcocks in Springfield. My wife was over there to see Mrs. Smith who takes but little Notice of her. P.M. I rode down to Colonel William Ward and got him to take Mr. Andrew Newtons Deed that it may be acknowledged. Went to Mr. Ephraim How of Marlborough and paid him Six Pounds Old Tenor Interest.
