1764 August 31 (Friday). We were agreed about the Binding Alexander but have no Blanks, nor Time to write Indentures. Mr. Bridge came there. We returned to Coll. Buckminsters and dined there. Called at Dr. Hemingways and Mr. Stones. Arrived here at Evening. Great Trouble with the Sheep’s breaking in etc. But a worse trouble arose with and about the Mare, being very willful when we got near the House — and I was obliged to correct her etc.: for which Mrs. P________ was much disturbed. The Lord forgive what occurred!
