1778 November 13 (Friday). Old Mr. Nathan Maynard came with a yoke of oxen. Ben Wood with a yoke and my Tim. fetches a yoke of Squire’s and his plough, and they plough the Orchard, and a while at the Island. Several loads of Wood were brought me: which is a great Comfort to me. I desire to thank God therefor. At eve, Mr. Jonas Bond of Sutton and his daughter here. They are returning home. They ask Sister Lydia to go up and stay awhile among them.
