October 5, 1748

1748 October 5 (Wednesday).  My Wife stilling.  Aaron Warrin at work.  Benjamin Tainter only came to gathering Corn a.m.  Some others p.m. viz. Neighbours Edwards Whipple, Joseph Green junior, Thomas Whipple, Mr. Elijah Warrin.  I visited Deacon Forbush who is ill but not bad, has Erisypilas Fever.  Several Hands came in the Evening to Husk, but it had rain’d so in the afternoon that they had gather’d but part of the Corn, and the Company chose to come again.  There were about eleven.
