September 23, 1772

1772 September 23 (Wednesday).  It was rainy a.m. but Phinehas was desirous to go to the Training at Lancaster; and having provided him an Horse, he went.  Though I had Grass seed for him to sow at the Island, and other things for him to do, yet many were going, and he went.  Sophy was very ill at Night.  Letter from Mr. Moore of last Saturday; via Grafton.  I transcribe the Votes for the Church at Grafton, and for Lt. Hezekiah Ward.
