October 16, 1776

1776 October 16 (Wednesday).  A Letter from Mr. Cushing and wrote an Answer — both by Mr. David Maynard junior.  Deacon Wood, Mr. Solomon Baker, Mr. Nathan Maynard with others came p.m. and cut up and brought my Indian Corn.  At Eve the Deacon went home, but gave us Cyder for the Huskers at Supper, who, Men and Boys, amounted to 14 only.  In the dark I fell into an Hole, and sorely wounded my Self, so that I could not Sleep.
