May 1, 1766

1766 May 1 (Thursday).  I rode to North Shrewsbury with Mr. Martyn to visit Brother Morse in his Affliction by his lame Hand.  We dined there.  I drank Tea there.  Returned home at Evening.  N.B. Mr. Benjamin How yesterday (except Lecture Time) and to Day a.m. graffed for me.  The Cyons were from Neighbour Nathan Maynards, Beetons (among which 6 of pears), Deacon Tainters, Mr. Ezekiel Smiths — and Some from my own Tree of Sir Harry Franklands Fruit.  Caleb and John finish the muck.
