September 21, 1756

1756 September 21 (Tuesday).  Billy gathers part of the Island Corn.  Nathan Kenny helped him p.m.  We were obliged to gather it because of the Hoggs invading it.  N.B. I visited Old Mr. Maynard, who is not well and I took Opportunity of discharging my Duty to his Daughter Mercy, who, though unmarried, is big with Child.  I also visited Mr. David Maynard junior’s Wife who has been for Some time drooping, and in some Spiritual Exercises.
