July 5, 1776

1776 July 5 (Friday).  More Men, I hear, are called for, as the former 28 for N.Y.  So now 8 from this place to go to Canada.  Chamberlain is with me to day only by a few Short Spells — mowes a little in the morning, plows about an hour, hoes a little — and Rain beats him off.  Mrs. Wheelock was here and was examined.
