October 17, 1746

1746 October 17 (Friday).  Mr. Bacon left us for Wrentham.  P.M. Visited Abigail Whipple and Hepzibah Rice.  Ebenezer got home our Cyder, 7 Barells, from Mr. Hows Mill.  N.B. We have made in all this Year something more than Nine Barrells.  More than ordinary Cold and Raw Weather — very uncomfortable for people that labor abroad.  My son gather’d some of the Corn.
