June 20, 1778

1778 June 20 (Saturday).  Alexander returns to Leicester.  He drives away his Cow, and Heiffer, also his Cow’s Calf: to mate which I have given him one of my Calves.  And further I have given my Daughter Cushing an Heiffer, which Alexander is to take the Care of, and drive to Mr. Browns of Winchendon.  N.B. his (Alexander’s) son Breck is at Leicester to assist him.  The new-raised Soldiers march this morning Eight o’clock.  I was troubled with a Pain in my Stomach and much indisposed to Study.  Was obliged to lye down.
