May 9, 1761

1761 May 9 (Saturday).  Sent for my Sheep out of the Pound, and sent ‘em up to Neighbour Newton to be yoked and fettered.  I provided yokes, viz. 7 and 3 more soals and Crotches.  He accordingly does the work.  I viewed both Newtons and Betons Fences.  Found Betons very Defective and Newtons part of it very bad, and Newtons outer Fence mended but newly.  Capt. Woods was mended since Tuesday last.  N.B. Alexander worked for Mr. Samuel Forb.
