August 15, 1771

1771 August 15 (Thursday).  Joseph and Gould brought home the last Jaggs from the Interval.  Paid Gould at the Rate of 5£ old Tenor per week for his Labor.  That is, having paid him two Dollars before, I now delivered him £3.16.8 more — being his full Demand.  He returned to his own Family.  I droop for want of Ability to take necessary Food.
