1774 February 10 (Thursday). Bright, but so windy as to blow up Roads. Neighbour Joseph Bond with Team of five Cattle trys, with my Team also, to fetch wood from Brigham Lot. My Son John goes to chop, and young Nathan Maynard with him; but it was so tedious they broke off about noon; with Difficulty got two Jaggs part of the way; but they brought but one home though they joined all the Cattle to make one Team. Mr. Moore came from Oxford.
