August 21, 1751

1751 August 21 (Wednesday).  I waited upon the Ladys as far as the Edge of Southborough in their Journey.  My sons Ebenezer and Thomas go to mowing at the Island — but by Various Hindrances, did not begin to mow there till late in the forenoon.  My Wife grew so ill that we were glad to See Mrs. Forbush[1] (the Midwife) coming to See us.  And we detain’d her all night.  Mrs. Bekky Warrin with her Child here, and tarrys to her Aunts Labour.

[1]Old “Granny” was the widow of Thomas Forbush.
