October 21, 1769

1769 October 21 (Saturday).  Having no body but John and my little Elias to do the Harvest-Business, I was obliged to assist, what I could in it.  At Eve Mr. Cushing came, with my Daughter, and his Mother, from their long Journey, to Yarmouth; which has been prosperous, through the Goodness of God.  To him be all Glory.  They came, by Boston, and bought many Necessarys for their Housekeeping.  N.B. Sarah received the 20th Day, of Capt. Maynard £110 old Tenor.  Have by them a Letter from Samuel whose Circumstances are now precarious, but I would cast my Cares about him upon a gracious covenant God.
