July 23, 1782

1782 July 23 (Tuesday).  A Sad Disaster befell one of my Neighbour Harringtons Piggs; which ran under the Cart Wheel as Thatcher was driving in a Load of Hay at the End of the House.  The Pig got up, ran down to the first Elm by the Road, there fell down and dyed.  Mr. Brigham stuck her (it was sow) and she bled.  Mr. Harrington was informed immediately by Mr. Brigham, but he would pay little Regard.
