October 6, 1752

1752 October 6 (Friday).  Another fine Day.  I rode to Mr. Jonas Brighams[1] to see his sister Mrs. Deborah who has been ill for some Time.  Thence I went to Marlborough.  Settled with Mr. Jacob Felton, paying him the Money which I took up of him last Year to pay Mr. Richard Barns for 4 acres of Land which I bought of him, adjoining to my old Place.  Din’d at Colonel Williams’s.  Was at Mr. Smiths[2] and Dr. Brighams.[3]  Return’d at Eve.  N.B. Ebenezer return’d last night from Leicester and the lost Cattle are brought home.  Lieutenant Tainter brought a Load of Wood and a Barrell of Cyder.
