1776 July 26 (Friday). Breck helps me in several Things relative to the Island Field. He with Jimmy reaps the rest. I help in gathering. Breck binds, and carts home. N.B. Six men more Sent for to go to Dorchester to keep Garrison instead of a Number going from thence to Canada. The Town meet — and They soon succeed in raising the Supply. My son Breck seems inclined to list. However they have enough without him. May God graciously influence his Mind and Heart in all!
