August 23, 1757

1757 August 23 (Tuesday).  Rain a.m.  No Amon to day.  Adam Rice setts his Nett in my Field, and catches Pidgeons, about 4 Dozen this forenoon.  William Stone comes here and gives Some Account of his Journey — that he went as far as Westfield — that the Men are not finally dismissed, but must be ready to go again when called.  At night came my Son and Daughter Baldwin from Brookfield.  He gives me account of the late Fight and surrender of the Fort William Henry from his Brother Nahum who was there.
