1760 July 14 (Monday). In Some affliction by reason of our little Flock of Sheep Straying away. They have been gone some Days, and we can’t hear of them. P.M. I undertook my Journey to Commencement about 3 p.m. by reason of the great Heat. Called at Mr. Stones, who was gone — at Mr. Bridge’s — neither was he at home: and his Wife not well, so that I saw neither of them. I rode this Evening as far as Capt. Samuel Baldwins by 9 o’Clock and (designing to stir Early, went not to Mr. Wood[wards?]) but lodged there.
