May 14, 1782

1782 May 14 (Tuesday).  I rode to Squire Bakers about my Cattle’s Summering; that is, when they must go.  Went round to the sawmill.  Was at Mr. John Maynards and Newtons.  At Old Mr. Pratts and Thaddeus Warrins.  Mr. Joseph Kilburne (preacher at Southborough) made me a Visit — dined here, and was detained by the Rain till near Night.  Mrs. Adams (Daniels Wife) visits me and opens horrible Scenes of her Husbands abuses.  I return to her (unread) the Papers of Witnesses, which were brought me by Mr. Joseph Grout.  Mrs. [blank] Morse came to be examined.  At Eve Mr. Kilburne returned to Southborough.  N.B. Mr. Brigham has been to Rutland — and went to Squire Caldwell’s at Barre on an Affair of my Son Ebenezers and returned this Evening.
