At home all day. We had for dinner the remains of Sunday’s and Monday’s dinners. In the afternoon Mr Terry, tobacconist, called on me and drank tea with us. I gave him a bill on Messrs Margesson and Collison,… value 2.16.10…in full on account of Messrs Terry and Geak. I went down to Jones’s with Mr Terry and stayed until 2 o’clock; I spent 12d. Mr Terry I think to be a very pushing man in his trade; he is by birth a Yorkshireman, has been abroad in the merchant service in Virginia 1¼ years, and rode in the tobacco trade for Mr Alliston before he entered into trade for himself. I was a little in liquor.
