June 30, 1752

1752 June 30 (Tuesday).  Fair, hot — N.B. Billy assisted a Drover (one Boardman of Exeter) with a Flock of Sheep and went so far with him as put us in great Consternation.  I visited old Mrs. Dorcas Forbush and borrow’d Lieutenant’s Horse to ride after Billy.  Went as far as Mr. Elisha Wards and found him there.  He had been as far as Mr. Jonathan Strattons.  In returning we din’d at Lieutenant Bruce’s.  I sent Billy to the other House to help his Brother this Afternoon.
