Whitsunday, June 6 1756

My brother William came over about 6 o’clock in the morning. He, my wife and myself and maid stayed the communion. I gave 18d; that is, for my wife, self and maid. The text in Luke 24:49: “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” We dined on a piece of bacon, spinach and a bread plum pudding. My brother, wife and self and maid at church in the afternoon; the text Philippians 4:6: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

After tea my wife, self and brother took a walk. Called in to see Master Joseph Fuller, whom we found, in my opinion, in a very bad way. In the evening Thomas Davy came in and sat with us about 2 hours, to whom I read Tillotson’s 34th sermon, preached before the King and Queen at Hampton Court the l4th April, 1689. The text, Luke 10:42: “But one thing is needful.” I read also several passages out of many others. N.B.: Yesterday morning paid Mr Jeremiah French the 2.2.0 borrowed of him the 3rd instant.
