1760 August 15 (Friday). Rain. Can’t journey home. It held up p.m. Mr. Forb. and I rode out to visit the Squires Convers and Ayres — the former not at home. At Squire Ayres’ Capt. Thomas Gilbert acknowledges the Deed which he had given my Son Ebenezer of Jonathan Gilberts place. At Night Mr. Forb. in Ebenezer’s behalf acquaints me with his great straits and Difficultys, to my great Grief to hear when I am so little able to do what is necessary for his Relief.
