February 26, 1742

1742 February 26 (Friday).  Thomas Winchester thrashed Barley.  My son Thomas[1] went to Mr. Johnsons Mill and by his being belated he got no farther back than Mr. Amsdens and lodged there.  We not knowing what had befallen him sent Mr. Smith (a Taylor) and Thomas Winchester for him: but they returned without him.  We reposed in Gods Providence.

[1]Thomas Parkman, son of Ebenezer and Mary Parkman, b. July 3, 1729 (WVR, 83).
