1778 October 1 (Thursday). Capt. Fisher, being upon a Bee-Hunting desires me to fasten up my Bees till 8 o’Clock, which I gratify him in. He would fain distinguish between what are my property, and those that are wild, that he may take the latter. Various setts of People are digging Iron Oar. Mr. [Andr. Hewt?] in my Meadow; Mr. Hemingway of Holliston in the Bent Meadow. P.M. Mrs. Maynard with one Mrs. Elizabeth Elwell, came to visit us.
