1769 October 12 (Thursday). Mr. Forbes and his Wife set out for Brookfield. Dr. Curtis from Marlborough visits and dines with us. He goes to Capt. Maynards where are Miss Betty Eager, and Miss Betty Brigham; who were here also Yesterday; and Mrs. Maynard with them. N.B. Sent John to Lt. Baker’s with the Mare which I had of him more than a Twelve-Month agoe, as I could not with all my trying, make her do for my and my Family’s use; and Lt. had told me again and again that he would take her if I returned her. This therefore I have now done.
