…My brother came over in the forenoon for the mare and for a basket bouillis. Rec’d of him 16/- for his share of the 2 shares of the 2 lottery tickets I bought. Will Burrage at work for me in the forenoon a-picking up of apples etc. Dame Vinal at washing all day, and both dined with us… In the morning wrote out about [¾]d worth of paper in land tax receipts for Mr Piper and Mr French, but they neither paid for the paper nor thanked me for the trouble. But there, I’ll suppose it was want of knowing better. Paid my brother 2/- for a Bible I had of my mother on Sunday.
