July 24, 1781

1781 July 24 (Tuesday).  In the morning from Shrewsbury came to Breakfast here, my dear Son Ebenezer after long Absence in the Army, and his son in Law, Master Peregrine Foster, who is going to Boston with a Covered Waggon and two Horses, to carry up Goods to Brookfield.  After Breakfast they Sat out for Boston.  P.M. I made a Visit to Mr. James Millers junior — none at home but the Maid, [blank] Livermore.  Was at Mr. Samuel Hardy’s but no Body was at home.  Thence to Mr. Stockwells who is in much spiritual Exercise — discoursed and prayed with him.  N.B. Mr. Thaddeus Warrin killed a Calf for me.
