1780 October 14 (Saturday). Mr. Ebenezer Maynard very kind in sowing and harrowing, both yesterday till afternoon and today a.m. with his son and yoke of Oxen. He did it gratis. Deacon Wood is in a sad Contest with one Chafey, who with his Wife and Child, boarded several months there, but refuses to pay him for it. I rode to Mr. Sumner’s and lodged.
