September 2, 1765

1765 September 2 (Monday).  What Mr. Quincy had writ in his late Letter, induced me to read Sallusts History of Cataline’s Conspiracy:  Translated by Mr. Rowe.  I have also the original to compare, when I incline to.  Thomas fetches my Oxen from Mr. Tainters where they have been for some time.  Thomas and John plow a while at the Island — and before noon break off to go to preparing for getting Sand.  This they accomplish p.m.: and bring a good Load.  Sarah went to Mr. Chamberlins.
