Friday, March 5 1756

At home all day. At church in the morning. My father Slater and Samuel came about 11:45. Sam had lamed his horse in coming; Thomas Daw oiled him. They both dined with us on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. After dinner they smoked one pipe and went to Lewes. In the evening my wife and I papered up about 80 papers of tobacco. I this day received from Mr Ralph Hale of Calne the piece of blanketing which I sent him a bill for some time past. After supper I read the 8th book of Homer’s Odyssey.
