1777 November 10 (Monday). Reuben did not come home last night. This morning I went to Neighbour [Lambsons?]; and found that Reuben was gone to Lancaster, to my Disappointment — but came home after Dinner, and it being rainy shelled Corn. I am much disappointed in not having my Island Field plowed; which had been occasioned by Reubens being so much gone in the Weeks past.
