1752 September 14 (Thursday). I remain feeble, yet I hope recruiting by slow Degrees. Mr. Forbush Studys here to Day, being about his preparations for the Sabbath — Billy has been about the Stalks, which he having cut, he is gathering and Piking as he is able. By Reason of the late Frosts the Bushes are so Brown’d that the Year is advanc’d into the Fall even more than in proportion to the alteration of the Date. Rain at Evening.
