In the morning my brother came over and went down to Peter Adams’s to try on his clothes. Came back and breakfasted with us. After breakfast I went over to Framfield with my brother to borrow some 6d sugar. Came back again about 11:10 and brought my brother John’s little boy home with me. We dined on pork and peas. After dinner I and the little boy went down to Mr French’s. I agreed to take his wool at last year’s price, though I am certain I must lost money by it. But as I did in a manner bid that money for it at the first part of the year, I would not be defective of my word. This day paid Halland gardener 2½ in full for cucumbers sold for him. Also paid him 8d for 1 hundred walnuts and 1 gallon currants. Carried the currants to Framfield and received of my mother 4d for them. Rec’d of Master Piper the 30 bottles lent him the 3rd of Sept. last. Rec’d also 6 fleeces wool, 16½ lbs. See tomorrow something relating to this day.
