February 27, 1781

1781 February 27 (Tuesday).  Breck to Boston.  I have no Boy this Morning.  I, unhappily, was exercised various ways.  Breck [blot]ed was kind and before he Sat out the Cattle.  Josiah came with another Load of Wood for [blot] drew water for my Cattle and turned them out to drink: Pamela took Care of two young Lambs, the Calf etc.  About 3 p.m. came Ben to my Relief.  At Eve I was sent for to drink Tea at the Shop — I went — for I have not been there from Week to Week.  Muddy Walking has (I fear) caused the Cramp.
