I was sent for down to Mr Porter’s in the morning to inform Francis Elless, the person who is intended to take the school, when I choose to resign it, and I agreed to the 17th instant. We dined on a knuckle of the shoulder of veal bought on Saturday, a piece of pork and greens. Sent Francis Smith by his man T. Hemsley in cash £18, which he is to pay in London for me. I also sent him in bad half-pence 6d. Borrowed of John Watford hay for 1 horse tonight. My brother came over about 7 o’clock in order to go to Lewes with me tomorrow to meet Mr Fletcher, Mr Samuel Ridings’ rider; my brother stayed all night.
