October 11, 1779

1779 October 11 (Monday).  This day we cutt up, carted home and husked out our Indian Corn.  Ephraim Tucker went with my Team and Deacon Wood with his.  About nine dined here.  There were forty or more of Men and Boys at Eve, and several Neighbors were so generous as to contribute to the Entertainment.  Squire Baker above 50 lbs. of Meat, Mr. Ebenezer Forbes, Beef and 3 cabbages, Lt. Bond, Pork, Mr. Barnabas Newton, a Cheese, Breck, sufficient Rum.  Through the Goodness of God we had a good crop, Sound Corn and the Joy of Harvest.  To Him be all Honor and Glory!  We sang latter part of Ps. 65.
