August 19, 1771

1771 August 19 (Monday).  I was much taken up in various family Affairs relative to the Ministers Meeting.  Master Taylor offered to get my Horse kept at his Fathers Pasture, and rides him there; leaving me his to ride as I have Occasion.  Having heard nothing from Mrs. P________ I went over to Capt. Maynards to see what help I can have from thence.  N.B. Mr. Spring kindly helps me in Sundry little Jobbs: putting in several new squares into my sashes, etc.  At night Mr. Abraham Bond helpfull and neighbourly in killing and dressing a Pig, etc.  But my Young woman, Anna Batherick too much indisposed to help us — especially p.m. and Evening.  N.B. We have had Mrs. Garfield p.m. to Scower, etc.
