1766 September 25 (Thursday). Rev. Mr. Bowen of Boston brings Polly Forbes, in the Rain. I am still poorly, but am refreshed by hearing that Mrs. P. got well to Stafford last Friday. My Son Ebenezer waited upon her, and tarried there till Monday; but then, leaving her there, returned to Brookfield. The long Sweep-Pole at the upper Well, broke down. Mr. B. Tainter supposes that nigh 100 lbs. of Meat was Stole out of his Cellar the night before last.
