May 18, 1757

1757 May 18 (Wednesday).  Lucy and Suse ride to Marlborough in my Chair.  I am much taken off my Studys by being obliged to look up Money, the Collector being deficient in paying me.  The French Girls bring 33 Yards of Cloth, which Magdalene has Spun and wove for us.  They dined here.  P.M. was to See Mrs. Woods.  N.B. She is come (with her Husband Capt. Benjamin Wood) to live here nigh us again.  I walked as far as Cornelius Biglow juniors after money — but without any success at all.  The Boys clearing at the Island.  My Burthens heavy; but may God sustain me!
