September 1, 1760

1760 September 1 (Monday).  Samuel Forb. with a Yoke of Oxen, and a Yoke from Mr. Zebulun Rice’s, and another from Mr. Joseph Baker ploughed my Summer tilling Ground at the Island.  I rode to Mr. Edwards Whipples, Solomon Bakers and Pratts, to provide for my Mason next week.  P.M. Mr. Baker sent his young man to help at the ploughing.  Sold my Mare to Mr. Joseph Baker for his Father, for 55£ Old Tenor to be paid in 3 months.  Mr. Zebulun Rice the witness — he wants to learn the Rules of Musick; of which I gave him a Sketch this Evening.
