1765 October 14 (Monday). Deacon Tainter comes to help in sorting the Corn, and dines here. Thomas carrys the Corn to the Barn. Sheep troublesome for several Days to my Neighbours. Mrs. Wheelock very bad. Has a bad sore. Visited and prayed with her; but she says very little. Master Cushing here, changes his Horse for mine, for this Journey before me: and he has my Mare for a Chaise to go to Southborough. My Son Baldwin came and lodges here. Sent his Horse to Neighbour Zebulun Rice’s.
