1771 August 19 (Monday). I was much taken up in various family Affairs relative to the Ministers Meeting. Master Taylor offered to get my Horse kept at his Fathers Pasture, and rides him there; leaving me his to ride as I have Occasion. Having heard nothing from Mrs. P________ I went over to Capt. Maynards to see what help I can have from thence. N.B. Mr. Spring kindly helps me in Sundry little Jobbs: putting in several new squares into my sashes, etc. At night Mr. Abraham Bond helpfull and neighbourly in killing and dressing a Pig, etc. But my Young woman, Anna Batherick too much indisposed to help us — especially p.m. and Evening. N.B. We have had Mrs. Garfield p.m. to Scower, etc.
