1772 February 7 (Friday). My Son and Daughter Cushing came to See us, and brought their Son John with them to our Joy. Mr. Edwards Whipple and Mr. Nathan Maynard came and killed two Swine for us. At Eve Master Taylor was here: and Mr. Joseph Harrington came about Mr. Hutchinsons Preaching at his House next Wednesday. I told him Mr. Smith had appointed that day to visit me, and therefore I could not attend the Exercise — proposed Thursday.
