1765 July 27 (Saturday). Neighbour Newton with Assistance of Neighbour Charles Rice and son Zebulun took up my Rye, and he brought it in. Neighbour Baker (Capt. Wood allowing him a Hand to work half a Day) fetched me a Load of Hay from Ensign Josiah Rice, for which I am to give him 4 Dollars. Lieutenant also kindly assisted about the Rye.
