July 20, 1748

1748 July 20 (Wednesday).  Six Hands mow’d in my ministerial meadow — viz. Mr. Bowman, Mr. Pratt, Phinehas Hardy, Solomon Woods, Jonathan Forbush and Zebulon Rice.  I waited on them both a. and p.m. at the Meadow and endeavor’d they Should have every Thing for their Comfort that I could.  Deacon Whipple[1] of Grafton brought Mr. Wainwright and they din’d with us.
