August 10, 1759

1759 August 10 (Friday).  Mr. Gamel comes to Work, but comes in a great Frett; at which I was much grieved when he came to the House and shewed it here.  Eat but a mouthfull or two of Food at Dinner.  He and Alex finished the Rye at the Island.  P.M. the Wheat at the Barn, and Steuked up the former.  Mrs. Maynard, going to Marlborough, came this way and brought Capt. Woods Mother — who dined with us.  Towards Eve she walked to her sons.  N.B. John Bowden came here to take Letters for the Army (he rides for that purpose).  I Sent to Billy — also to Mr. Forbush.
