1760 April 29 (Tuesday). By Vertue of a Letter from Mr. Stone I rode to Southborough; a Council, called by Capt. Taylor and others, consisting of Three Churches, Cambridge first Church, the Churches in Watertown and Charleston, sits there. Dined at Mr. Stones. I was at the public Hearing a. and p.m. N.B. Messrs. Martyn and Smith, Thatcher and Woodward, there with Mr. Stone. N.B. Elisha Forbush with a Yoke of Cattle helps in getting out our Muck and ploughing the orchard. Mr. Tainter also (by my Desire) improved the opportunity to bring 60 Rails for me which are laid at the Island to fence the Lane by Capt. Maynards Meadow.
