Friday 9th. Thermometer at 48 in the Morning—60 at Noon and 59 at Night. Wind at So. Wt. Weather mild & clear.
Went this day to the back line of my land in order to run a strait line 30 feet within the marked trees for a ditch leaving that space without for a road. Was not able to compleat it.
Passed by the Ferry, Frenchs and Dogue run in going and Muddy hole in returning.
At the 3 first the plows as usual were at work. At the latter the drivers were assisting with the Potatoes.
At the Ferry the hands were husking & securing the Corn they had gathered.
At Frenchs they were grubbing and stopping gullies before the Plows.
At Dogue run they were digging Potatoes.
At Muddy hole doing the same.
