January 14, 1777

1777 January 14 (Tuesday).  I went over to see old Mrs. Kelly.  In my way called in to Mr. Hannaniah Parker.  When I returned expected to see Deacon Wood and Mr. Nathan Maynard junior who had been killing two large swine for me, but the Deacon was gone home, and Joseph Culloch, who came with him, and assisted — but Maynard stays and dines here.  P.M. Mr. Stone of Southborough Visits me.  And at Eve came Mr. Thomas Kendal from Ticonderoga, and lodges here.  At Eve also Joseph Culloch and his Brother James came and weighed, cut out and salted up my Pork.  One weighed 274, the other 259.  N.B. Breck keeps House.
