August 1, 1760

1760 August 1 (Friday).  My sons have got through their Hilling.  We have sowed two Bushels of Rye in that Field which we Call the Cook Field.  N.B. Messrs. Kidder and Tainter, from Sutton here and acquaint me how their Affairs go — that Mr. Welman has asked the Church to dismiss him: and that the Church, taking in the 13 who were Delinquents, have voted his Dismission.  And these men inform me that he can preach for me next Sabbath — or when it will best suit me.  I answer that it will be best on the 17th Day of this Month.  Mrs. Maynard and Suse return from Marlborough.
