1779 June 16 (Wednesday). Mr. Forbes and his Daughter left us to go to Brookfield. N.B. Before he went, his cousin Elisha came, and they agree about the nine Sheep of Mr. F. which I have heretofore kept. Mr. Aaron Smith came — dined with us — Lt. Bond, and with him a yoke of Oxen and Horse — my Eph. Parker with my oxen and Breck’s mare go on in plowing fallow ground at the Island.
