[from the Diary of John Adams]

August 15. 1796. Monday.

My Team met the Abington Team at the Bars, and plough’d the Baulk between Burrells Corn and the great Wall, with the great Plough.

Ploughed on the North Side of the Wall from the Road to the rocky Vally with the small breaking up plough. Trask mowing Bushes and burning. At Night both Teams came home with both Ploughs.

Mrs. Adams went with Mrs. Otis to Situate and Plymouth.
