July 1, 1748

1748 July 1 (Friday).  Bright Day.  Air cooler much than of late.  Thomas Rogers came to hilling along with Ebenezer the forenoon for Josephs work for his Brother John.  I was oblig’d to turn out and tend Hay, and pole from some distance for notwithstanding what I said yesterday nobody came to work for me.  Some rain towards Eve.  Deacon Sparhawk[1] of Cambridge came to see us and lodg’d here.
