August 25, 1736

1736 August 25 (Wednesday).  David drew up my Pump Hook out of the Pump, which I So Secured to a Pole that it held, but in his Endeavouring to draw up the Pump Box with it, he drew out the Staple from the Box, which put an End to all further Tryal.  P.M. I rode to Shrewsbury in Quest of Mr. Tucker but in Vain for he was not to be heard of.  Returned at Eve.  Water from the Old Well.
