October 6, 1780

1780 October 6 (Friday).  Daughter Baldwin sends me a packet of Letters — one from Col. to her: 3 of Ebenezer to her, which show him to have been in a distressed, disconsolate and now in a sick and weak Condition.  I wrote a Letter to him, though I am not sure how I shall send it.  I am much perplexed and disappointed about getting my West Field (the rest of what I proposed) plowed.
