1760 April 25 (Friday). A Warm fine Day. We have Mr. Parkers Oxen to plough. Mr. Nurse sows Oats for me. N.B. Mr. Beatons sets a Fire which unhappily runs and burns up part of the Fence between him and Neighbour Barnabas Newton. But Some Number of Hands gather together and get the mastery of it. To God be Glory! At the Island, Alex and Breck having got Mr. Parkers Oxen, ploughed in 3 Bushel of Oates — Sown by Mr. Aaron Nurse. At Eve reckoned with Deacon Tainter and paid all; and for 4 Load of Wood which are not yet brought.
