November 10, 1767

1767 November 10 (Tuesday).  I attended the Funeral of Patty Beeton.  Deacon Wood and Mr. David Maynard killed an Ox for me.  The Weight of the Quarters, was 583 lb.  And the Hide was 86.  The Butchers dined with me and Deacon Wood asked me to be at his House on Thursday next, to dine there at one o’Clock: but did not say any Thing of the Occasion.  P.M. rode though rainy to visit Mr. Phinehas Hardy, who lately fell from his Cart, and was sadly lamed.  Went also to see his Aged Mother.  Prayed there, and returned at Evening.  N.B. Mr. Eli Whitney had been here in the Day about his own and his Wife’s joining with the Church.
