May 7, 1739

1739 May 7 (Monday).  We furrow’d the further piece of the north field and planted the most of it till the Rain increas’d so much that we were oblig’d to desist.  N.B. Sent for my Horse from Mr. Jacob Amsdens.  N.B. Mr. William Nurse brought me a fine Pigg of Two Months old and receiv’d only 2/6 (which was Scarcely a Quarter Price) for it.  N.B. receiv’d also a Pig of a Month old from Brother Hicks.  At Night the Storm prevail’d greatly.
