July 9, 1766

1766 July 9 (Wednesday).  My Wife and I had Dr. Hawe’s Chair to Hopkinton to Visit Brother Barrett.  Dine there.  Cannot return home because of Mr. Barrett and his sons going to Dr. Wilsons Raising a new back part to his House.  He induces me to go and I Sup there: but we lodge at Mr. Barretts.  [Marginal notation, partly obscured: Sarah makes 5 Gallons of Currant Wine.]
