1756 September 21 (Tuesday). Billy gathers part of the Island Corn. Nathan Kenny helped him p.m. We were obliged to gather it because of the Hoggs invading it. N.B. I visited Old Mr. Maynard, who is not well and I took Opportunity of discharging my Duty to his Daughter Mercy, who, though unmarried, is big with Child. I also visited Mr. David Maynard junior’s Wife who has been for Some time drooping, and in some Spiritual Exercises.
