In the forenoon I went down to see Peter Adams; found him in bed and determined to prosecute the men that abused him. Stayed and smoked one pipe and came home about 1 o’clock. We dined on the remains of Tuesday’s dinner with the addition of a piece of pork, butter pudding, and spinach. Lent Peter Adams in cash £1, which…makes £2, and for which I have his note of hand. After the post came back, sent our maid over to Framfield with a dozen of buttons. My brother brought over a pair of breeches for little Darby and drank tea with us this day. Our parish played at cricket with Chiddingly parish on Broad Oak and had not time to play it out, but to all appearance it was in the favor of this parish. At home all day except for going to Peter Adams’s. In the evening read the 29th of Tillotson’s sermons. Dr Snelling called on us in his way to Ticehurst, but did not get off.
