About 3 o’clock went down to Mr French’s and borrowed his little horse to go to Lewes upon for wine for Dame Reeve’s funeral, having sent for some but it did not come as I expected. I rode him up home to put on my greatcoat etc., and accordingly got up at the block, but by accident, either by touching him with the spur or his taking fright with the dog, he fell a-kicking and running etc. and threw me down near the corner of Mr Virgoe’s stone wall, and hurt my side very much. I sent Thomas Davy for the doctor in the evening, but he did not come. Paid Dame Vinal for washing 9d. Gave a man who brought the wine for me from Lewes by accident (it not being the same I sent for it by) 6d.
