July 14, 1760

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.
