July 27, 1765

1765 July 27 (Saturday).  Neighbour Newton with Assistance of Neighbour Charles Rice and son Zebulun took up my Rye, and he brought it in.  Neighbour Baker (Capt. Wood allowing him a Hand to work half a Day) fetched me a Load of Hay from Ensign Josiah Rice, for which I am to give him 4 Dollars.  Lieutenant also kindly assisted about the Rye.
