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.
