1759 July 4 (Wednesday). My Wife did not return last Night from Marlborough. My little Sophy broke out thick with the Meazles. Samme somewhat but not perfectly: the rest are about House. Mr. Moses Twitchell mowes for me, here at home. P.M. Deacon Tainter sends a Boy to hoe and Phinehas Forb. comes with him: afterward the Deacon himself now the Third Time to forward my Corn Field. He tells me it was somewhat hurt by the late Frost. At Eve my wife returns. Mr. Twitchell goes home.
