May 16, 1757

1757 May 16 (Monday).  The End of my staying at Southborough was that I might go to Marlborough this morning which I did (having Mr. Abijah Gales Horse which I borrowed for this purpose).  Rode to Esquire Brighams — to Mrs. Betty Eagers, where I got two young Mulberry Trees — dined with my wife’s Kinswoman Mrs. Anna Brigham — gave her a note of 50£ old Tenor upon Interest, as part of pay for Lucys Curtains, Chairs, etc.  Went to Mr. Ephraim How’s but he was not at home.  Paid his wife 7£ Old Tenor and took her receipt.  Capt. Storer of Boston going to Worcester.
