July 15, 1740

1740 July 15 (Tuesday).  I rode to my ministerial Meadow, found Edward and Benjamin Whipple mowing.  It was already somewhat Brown and ought to have been cutt before this Day.  I rode to Mr. Whipples, Captain Fays, Mr. Grouts,[1] Cousin Winchesters, Mr. Nathaniel Whitneys, Walkers, Tainters (where I din’d — N.B. Discourse with Bekky),[2] old Mrs. Rice’s and thence home about 2 p.m.
