1776 April 11 (Thursday). Abigail Woods came to make me a black Serge Jacket, but works only part of the Day (came late and broke off early — her Brother Abel is gone in a Waggon this afternoon part of the way to Brookfield). Mr. Cordwell of Sutton here, returning home. I trade with Capt. Maynard for a 3 year old Steer to match One of Mine; Elijah being fond of obtaining it. Lt. Uriah Brigham brings me a Letter from Squire [Jos.?] Dorr of Mendon informing me of his Mothers Death and desiring Me to attend the Funeral tomorrow.
