October 4, 1748

1748 October 4 (Tuesday).  Aaron Warrin works here.  My wife began to still Cyder, having borrow’d a large Iron Pott of Mr. Eliezer Rice for that Purpose.  P.M. I rode to Mr. Daniel Warrins to see his brother in law Abraham Bond who is sick at a Fever.  Was at Mr. Knowltons who was very kind favouring me with Rie meal and a Quarter of Mutton which I brought home with me for we had great need of them being in hopes of divers Hands tomorrow to gather and husk my Corn — and had no Body that I could send so far to mill as Mr. Drury’s.
