July 11, 1726

1726 July 11 (Monday).  I went out to see my Hay; Mr. Rice[1] came to see me and he with my own people (Two of them) got it into Cock.  The Boy, first with me and then the men, poled it in, there being appearance of foul Weather nigh, and the cocks standing round the Barn, very Easy at hand.  Now and in the next Morning together we carry’d in above Thirty.
