August 5, 1778

1778 August 5 (Wednesday).  The Young soldiers, though a great price is given them and only for six weeks, though they Should have been at Mendon last Friday noon, Sat out, not till this Morning, from hence.  Mr. Phinehas Gleasons Wife was here and brought a Ball of Worstead weighing 10 Ounces, which She gives me towards making me a Gown.
