At home all day. My brother came over about 11 o’clock; stayed and dined with me on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. After dinner my brother went down to Osborne’s at Whitesmith to get in their debt for me, but could not. My brother stayed until near 3 o’clock. In the evening read part of the The History of England. It is a sad, melancholic life to live alone and be confined in. Paid the gardener at Halland 6d for 1 peck gooseberries received today.
