1778 May 16 (Saturday).  Wrote to Mr. Stone about Mr. Lorings Diary [illegible] that our propriety in it is a joint propriety: and that it can’t be divided.  Mr. David Stow of Grafton here and dines.  I give him Salt for the sheep, and Rum against the washing of them.  To my great Regret I was continually taken up with the Small Affairs of the Garden, the Cattle, etc. etc.  Breck returned from Boston and Cambridge late at night.
