August 18, 1739

1739 August 18 (Saturday).  Mr. Jonah Warrin brought me home Two Small Turns of Hay from the ministerial Meadow.  And I got Mr. Aaron Forbush to putt into Stack a parcel of Cocks which Mr. Pratt had left for Some Time in the Meadow.  Elaezer Williams with a Team came and got up a Load from the low Ground at home and Mr. Warrin and he got up what was mowed by Charles Bruce.  Near Night, Mr. Cushing came.  I was exceeding Hott and sweatty, with walking and looking after my Folks and Business, and when I came to shirt me cool’d my Self too much.  Rode Captain Forbush’s[1] Horse up to Shrewsbury in the Evening and doubtless took Cold.
