October 1, 1739

1739 October 1 (Monday).  Mr. David Maynard, junior was here with a large Bay Horse which I agreed with him for, in presence of Mr. Francis Whipple and Mr. Abner Newton at the price of 35 pounds but with the Reserve and Condition that if I find that he doth not suit me, he shall take him again, if he be return’d within a fortnights Time.  This was written and Declar’d by both of us before the Witnesses.  The Road which goes out south from my House handsomely clear’d up, and the Training field clear’d more Spaciously.
