July 13, 1747

1747 July 13 (Monday).  In the Morning I rode over to Mr. Dunlop to get him to come and reap.  Found him at Lieutenant Tainters.  Our Girls Bekky Hicks[1] and my Lucy pull’d Flax.  Mary Bradish came and pull’d another Piece of Flax.  Old Mr. Axtell[2] from Grafton here.  He tells me Mr. Loring is gone along, fearing the Storm which threatens.  He says Mr. Prentice sat in the Pulpit — divers at meeting in the forenoon that were not in the afternoon.  N.B. Jonas Brigham[3] here on the Affair of his joining to the Church.

[1]Rebecca was the daughter of Parkman’s brother-in-law, John Hicks of Sutton.

[2]Thomas Axtell.

[3]The son of David Brigham of Westborough.
