July 5, 1756

1756 July 5 (Monday).  But a.m. Mr. Manning left us to go to Uxbridge.  Mr. Moses Twitchel and Daniel Miller come to clear a piece of my Land on Mr. Nurses Road.  I hope I am a little more revived.  Yet dare not meddle much with Books.  N.B. My Cousen Trask of Sutton Sends me word of his sorrowful Bereavement, that last Thursday his dear Wife dyed.  May God Himself comfort him with those Consolations which are not small!  Billy hoes in the New Field alone.  Sarah for [this great?] while at t’other House, helping her sister Eliza, who remains weak and poor.
