In the morning Mr French brought in his wool, 108 fleeces weighing 7 tod 2 lbs at 7d per 1b, which amounts to 6.11.10. After breakfast my brother and I packed my wool; viz., 1 cloth marked “A” containing 127 fleeces, weighing 8 tod 18 lbs…

This day received the books I bought of Mr Baker the 16th instant. After dinner I went up to Mr Burgess’s to know if Thomas Tester had left any money in his hands to go towards paying Savage, who this day called on me and insisted either on our paying the money or that they would stop no longer without arresting him. In the evening Mr French, Joseph Fuller and myself went up again to consult with Mr Burgess which would be the best way to proceed in the affair, but we came to no resolution. Came home at 8:45. This day lent John Jones by Elizabeth Akehurst in cash 1 guinea. Paid my brother 2/10 for 6 brushes, 1 m 2 1b clouts he bought for me at Lewes on Saturday.
