August 7, 1766

1766 August 7 (Thursday).  I rode with Sarah to Dr. Wilsons, further to consult him upon her Case.  We dined there.  N.B. Mrs. Wilsons Brother Capt. Overing, there.  He relates some of his late sufferings by shipwreck at the east End of Cuba.  We returned in Safety and Comfort.  Blessed be God!  Mr. Cushing here when we came home.  Mrs. Wood grows worse.  Caleb and John get in a Load of Stover cut within the Island Field — some Grass, Some Weeds, Some Oates cut before ripe.
