At church in the morning, but no sermon. John Jones’s wife buried in the afternoon. I was not at the funeral on account of my being very busy. There was a sermon for her, the text in Galatians 6:7: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Paid for butter 2¾d and milk 1d. After churchtime young Mrs Vine came in and drank tea with us. In the evening Mr Vine came; they both supped with us and played at whist; we neither won nor lost. They went away about 11 o’clock. Thomas Davy was here part of the evening. At home all day. My brother Moses dined here. Borrowed of Mrs. Day near one bottle of brandy.
