At home all day. William Burrage and his boy at work for me today about ¾ of a day a-mowing of my orchard and gardening. We dined on 1 carp boiled, a piece of bacon and greens, with the remains of yesterday’s dinner, William Burrage dined with us. Very busy all the day. Sent Francis Smith by his boy in cash £11… which he is to pay in London for me. In the afternoon my brother was at our house. This day put the water to the raisins in order to make raisin wine.
