May 1, 1755

1755 May 1 (Thursday).  In the Morning I went to Mr. Jonah Warrins[1] — Sarah, his Daughter, exceedingly Set to destroy herself, being requested by him though against her Inclination, I pray’d.  N.B. She ran away into the Woods, and all hands after her.  Neighbour Alpheus Newton a.m. sowed and plough’d in some more Wheat and some Peas at the Barn Orchard.
