July 12, 1766

1766 July 12 (Saturday).  Deacon Tainter kills a Calf for me.  Dr. Hawes, Mrs. Nurse and Mrs. Johnson, each a Quarter.  William came from Townshend and dined with us.  He came from his House this Morning.  Reckoned with Mr. Moses Nurse (after a long fruitless Endeavour to accomplish it) and pay him by a Note to Mr. Tainter — £4.17.0 old Tenor.  Caleb works for Dr. — tends the Hay the rest.  John went with two Yoke of Oxen to the Forbes Saw Mill and brought a Load of good slabs to floor our Barn Bay before we put Hay into it — and p.m. Caleb Strives to get home the Hay From the Meadow.  Brings the most of it in one great Load.
