1781 October 27 (Saturday). I have neither Man nor Boy, except Billy Spring who can fetch the Cows and cut a little Wood. But the Trouble of my Eyes is I think, increased. At Eve a Great Noise of the taking of General Cornwallis. Dr. Hawes brought me a Letter of General Cornwallis Defeat, from Mr. Quincy, with an Hand-Bill certifying it, and his Army with him made prisoners of War. The Glory of God if So!
