April 27, 1759

1759 April 27 (Friday).  Thomas has Capt. Maynards Mare and Mr. Nurse’s Chair, and goes to Brookfield for Suse.  I Send Ebenezer my great Cow Bell and a Dollar for his Son Elias.  P.M. my Brother P________ returns from Middletown, in Good Health, and Comfort, through the great Goodness of God and finds us far Otherwise than he left us, for whereas my Wife was then very weak and low, now she is greatly recruited and daily gathering Strength.  To God all Glory.  My Brother assists me in grafting Apricots and Apples which I brought from Sir Henry Franklands last week.
