May 16, 1750

1750 May 16 (Wednesday).  Was at Mr. Jonas Childs, but neither he nor his Wife at home.  Hear that Mr. Biglo has taken him with him to Marlborough to work at a Stone-Wall, which I hope will prove a good thing, and proper means of diverting his Mind and helping his Body.  Ebenezer and Billy went up to Brother Hicks’s with 5 Young Cattle.  I visited old Mr. Fay.  N.B. Colonel Buckminister and Lady here when I was from home, They being in their Journey to Brookfield and Rutland.  N.B. Captain Maynard fences the old Meeting House Ground.
