October 28, 1768

1768 October 28 (Friday).  In many perplexitys about getting in the rest of the Corn — It being too much for John.  A great part of that which was husked lying abroad and a great Body of husks, which had been wet with the storm — several Load yet in the Field — and not easy to get any Hand to help.  Friday with me and can’t go my self — and am to be gone (with leave of Providence) next week — but p.m. Nathan Maynard junior and his Brother Nehemiah came and cut up and carted the Corn from the Field, and about 20 at Evening husked it out, and got in great part of the Husks.
