1726 June 14 (Tuesday). Training Day. The Officers sent importunate Addresses to me to have me dine with them. I rode as far as Mr. Maynards (the next house) and it made me more chearfull. It was Town meeting also, in the Afternoon upon account of our Sutton neighbours that would be Set off to us. Robert was at Moulding up my Indian Corn. He did not make that Heavy Business of the First part that he did before. I prosecuted some preparation for Next Sabbath.
