April 10, 1760

1760 April 10 (Thursday).  I rode over to Mr. Isaac Pratts to get him to make me a pair of Leather Breeches of a large skin I bought of Mr. Solomon Rice, and which his Father dressed.  Mr. Welman, going to get another Council, here and dined with me.  N.B. had Neighbour Barny Newtons Oxen, and Capt. Woods to plough stubble.  Samuel Lamb (Capt. Woods young man) helps Alexander in it.  Sarah keeps School in that which was Thomas’s Shop.  P.M. I went over to t’other House — what with the Horses Mr. Rice has taken and the Horse, Cattle and Sheep which Mr. Parker has brought my Barn is over stocked and my Hay flies apace.  In returning home Saw at Mrs. Nurse’s one that calls her self an English Captive, and her name Molly Hubbard — who was taken from No. 4 when she was 5 years old and had been among the French and Indians 15 Year.  She says She was brought from Quebeck 4 months agoe.  Wants to find her uncle Joseph Hubbard.
