1757 July 28 (Thursday). This Day we Spent in reviewing our Minutes, and reading over Papers, debating and Voting. The work of writing required my very Close attendance all Day So that it was as much as I could well Stand – but God supported my feeble frame. Mr. Eliezer Rice carted home 3 Load of Hay and carryed in the remainder of my Rye. Amon and Twitchell to the Meadow. My son Thomas worked there most of the Day with them.
