Just as we were going to church, Mr Tucker came in, which prevented my going to church; my wife at church both in the forenoon and afternoon. We dined on a piece of bacon, batter pudding and greens. He stayed and drank tea with us and went away about 5:30. Mr French called in the evening and stayed and smoked one pipe. At home all day. Our maid came home about 7 o’clock. William Bristow and Mary Hope asked today [i.e., their banns were read in church].
