August 16, 1764

1764 August 16 (Thursday).  Capt. Woods Pot-Ash at work.  I was there to See it.  Brewer the workman, to manage it.  Messrs. Holbrook and Surcomb return and dine with me.  At Eve I wait upon ‘em to Capt. Woods, they having never seen the working of Pot-ash.  They were now smelting.  These Gentlemen tarry with us over Night.  N.B. Mr. Barns help me p.m. in gathering up my Oates.
