October 13, 1766

1766 October 13 (Monday).  Mr. Biglow left us.  I visit old Mrs. Byles — dined there.  Visit at Neighbour Elijah Rice’s, Twitchells, Elijah Hardys, Ensign Millers — but especially old Mrs. Grow and prayed with her — and Lt. Harrington confined by a bad Fall yesterday and prayed with him.  N.B. Caleb bestirred himself and Neighbours came, cutt up, Carted in and husked out my Indian Corn.  51 Hands at supper.  N.B. when I named and read part of the 4th Psalm to be sung, Neighbour Batherick Struck — but it was a Tune I knew not.  He sung almost wholly alone throughout the whole Singing.  For which I was very sorry.  When he had done, he told me it was Plimouth.  Visit Mrs. Haws — run away with by their wild Mare, Scared, thrown out of the Chair and hurt.  Prayed with her.
