May 12, 1778

1778 May 12 (Tuesday).  James Hicks drives four young Creatures of my Son Baldwins, and four of my own, to go to Pasture, At Brookfield.  Elias was obliged to go with him to Farrars in Shrewsbury, to help him along with them.  My Son Alexanders Cow is so weak, yet heavy that She daily to be lifted up: and often times by other Help than our own.
