July 18, 1747

1747 July 18 (Saturday).  Assisted what I could in raking Hay.  My whole House has lent an Hand before a storm.  At Eve I stood dress’d in order to go up to Grafton but the Showers and Thunder prevented.  Neither did Mr. Wilson whom I expect’d from Hopkinton come till about nine o’Clock. So that I was forc’d to lay aside going till the Morning.
