September 23, 1755

1755 September 23 (Tuesday).  Brother Hicks here, going to Boston again on the Affair of Elijah Collins: it being left to Arbitration.  N.B. We are exceedingly troubl’d by Captain Forbushes Hogs at my Cook Field — 10 of them and have been in nigh 10 Times.  I got Mr. Ebenezer Forbush to mend my Fence — and yet they got in.  I went to the Captain’s and they promis’d to Shutt them up.
