1764 August 11 (Saturday). Deacon Tainter came in the Morning to plow in my Corn-Field in order to our hoeing it again but my plough was broke, and therefore to mend; and I had no Rie to sow; he had himself a great deal of Hay and Oates to take Care of at home; so that he returned without doing any Thing. But 4 Young Men, Levi Warrin, Elisha Forbush by Proxy, John Forb. in his room; Thomas and Joseph Bond, came and hoed the Corn in my Orchard and finished before 10 o’Clock. Breck and John plowed for ‘em.
