September 1, 1758

1758 September 1 (Friday).  To my Grief I am forced to Spend a great deal of my Time in looking up Hands to work, but Succeed poorly — however, thus far; I obtain a Team of Neighbour Solomon Bakers which Aaron Nurse and John Pratt go with to the Ministerial Meadow and bring one Load from thence, which is all I have there.  N.B. Yesterday I Sent to Mr. Winter, in the Name of my Son Forbush, by the Hand of Barnabas Newton £39.7.0 Old Tenor.
