1765 September 2 (Monday). What Mr. Quincy had writ in his late Letter, induced me to read Sallusts History of Cataline’s Conspiracy: Translated by Mr. Rowe. I have also the original to compare, when I incline to. Thomas fetches my Oxen from Mr. Tainters where they have been for some time. Thomas and John plow a while at the Island — and before noon break off to go to preparing for getting Sand. This they accomplish p.m.: and bring a good Load. Sarah went to Mr. Chamberlins.
