June 8, 1757

1757 June 8 (Wednesday).  Amon Blanc and my two Boys Alex. and Breck hoe my Corn.  Capt. Baldwin (who came a Little after Midnight) to Day takes his Wife out in a Chair, and they ride over to Mr. Martyns — and return at Evening.  P.M. came his Father and Mother; and at Evening his Uncle Samuel (with whom he served apprenticeship).  They Supped and lodged here.  I would view the kind Hand of Providence that when I was Somewhat put to’t for fresh Meat, Mr. Maynard kindly Sent me a Quarter of veal and some Butter.  Mrs. Dolly Rice an old Cheese. Thomas went to Southborough to invite Miss Huldah Stone to go with his Sister to Brookfield; but returned without her, it being too short Warning, yet longer could not be given because Lucy was So ill yesterday that it was uncertain whether she could go her self.
