1781 June 14 (Thursday). A Notable Raising of Squire Bakers great Barn of 110 feet long. I was invited and as our Lord and Saviour did not refuse when asked to an Entertainment so I complyed — went, dined and supp’d there. No Evil Occurrence, nor signs of Intemperance among them. Mr. Brigham returned last Night from Boston — tells me that my son Samuel has carried to Dr. Mather his 4th Volume of Cotton of the Keys etc.
