January 9, 1758

1758 January 9 (Monday).  I have Still Ensign Willards Horse in keeping; and rode him to Mr. Tim Warrins where I left him, and took a Young Mare of his to ride upon Trial to Marlborough.  Went to the Widow Barn’s, and hired money of her, viz. the 50£ Old Tenor of which I wrote to her on the 7th.  When I returned home Mr. Joseph Gilbert of Brookfield came with an Horse he led down (viz. Mr. Forbush’s) to wait upon Mrs. Lydia Champney — whereas She has not been conducted here yet.
