After dinner I borrowed John Vine the younger’s horse and went over to Uckfield in order to look at some buckskin breeches. But Mr Hart was not at home; so I was again disappointed. I went by Framfield. My mother was not at home, she being gone to Master Elphick’s. My brother went with me to Uckfield, and I came back by Framfield, but did not stay. I came home about 5:15. Charles Diggens was at our house in my absence to take up a pair of breeches for Mr Burgess’s son, but was gone before I came home. We dined on a piece of boiled beef, suet pudding, pea pudding and potatoes. In the evening Thomas Davy was here and supped with us. We played at cribbage; I lost ½d. I read three books of Homer’s Odyssey.
