May 1, 1750

1750 May 1 (Tuesday).  Very pleasant after the Rain.  All Nature blooming and flourishing whilst (alas!) my Heart is as a barren Wilderness.  Mr. Haven left us to go back to Framingham.  My Wife and I rode to Mr. Twitchells.[1]  Ebenezer and Joseph Mending Fence, ploughing and preparing the Fields for Planting.

[1]Jonas Twitchel (Twitchell), of Westborough.
