August 13, 1755

1755 August 13 (Wednesday).  Barachias and Seth Morse work for me — they get home 3 Load, 2 Load by half after 12.  P.M. they rake and bring home another Load at Eve.  Those were brought by our own Team: Ebenezers Oxen and my Mare.  Having heard that my Young Cattle in the woods, had stray’d from their Keeper, I wrote several Letters and Advertisements about them.
