1756 September 17 (Friday). The Frost having in some Measure seized my Corn, Billy (agreeable to the practice which some of the Neighbours go into) stripps down the Husks, as it stands in the Field. Ebenezer Rice junior helps him. Thomas so riggs up the Chair that my Wife and I ride to Marlborough. Dined at Esq. Brighams — and then Visited the late Doctors Widow who has but newly lain in. We returned safe at Eve.
