January 5, 1747

1747 January 5 (Monday).  No body comes to cutt wood as was expected.  My Hay so very short that my mind is full of Concern.  A.M. my sons thrash’d Rye. I rode into the Neighbourhood to enquire after Hay.  To Neighbour Eliezer Rice, Williams’s, Pratts. At Old Mr. Maynards at Eve — Old Mr. Whipple and Captain Maynard there.  No Success as to Hay.
