October 17, 1748

1748 October 17 (Monday).  The Procters sett out for Sutton.  Ebenezer began to make our late Cyder.  I rode to Mr. Josselyns who kindly lent me 20£ old Tenor.  I proceeded on my Journey to Watertown.  Rain’d at Eve.  Was at Cornet Brights to see his Pippins and other rich Fruit.  I design’d for Cambridge but it rain’d so hard I turn’d back to Mr. Daniel Bonds and lodg’d there.
