1777 November 12 (Wednesday). Elias returned from Coi’s Hill, Brookfield but from Baldwins of Shrewsbury only, this morning. He has brought but 4 Creatures out of six — but an Heiffer I designed to kill, in missing. See the 5th. I wrote to my Daughter Baldwin and to Mr. David [torn]cock Taverner, with Notification to be set up at [torn] Public Houses. Committed them to the Care of Mr. [torn] [Work?] of Royalston.
