July 9, 1760

1760 July 9 (Wednesday).  Silas Frost works here.  He mows the West Pasture and behind the Meeting House and a while at the Island.  I visited at Mr. Solomon Bakers; but he had carryed his lame Leg to the Doctors so that I missed of him, though his wife was at home, and she Shewed me what She had prepared by way of Relation.  The Boys get in more Hay.  Mr. Hezekiah How came, with his son Daniel and a Team, for a Barrell of Cyder, which I let him have only upon Condition that he will let me have as good an one this time twelve Month with as good new Barrell as this.
