Tuesday, August 10 1756

At home all the day. William Burrage at work for me. We dined on the remains of Sunday’s dinner with the addition of a piece of pork and carrots. Paid Dame Trill 3/- in full for keeping Ann Brazier to yesterday. Paid a carter 6d for bringing some things from Lewes for me. I yesterday and today endeavoured to borrow some bottles of Mr Atkins and Mrs Fuller, and also Mr Porter, but they could not lend me any though I have lent them some several times. Oh, ingratitude, thou blackest of fiends!
