My wife, self, nephew and maid at church in the morning… We dined on 2 carp boiled, a piece of beef, and bacon boiled with some turnips. Here there was no churching this afternoon on account of Mr Porter’s going to Waldron to officiate for Mr Hamlin; so neither myself nor wife were at church in the afternoon. Our servant went to Chiddingly Church. Thomas Davy supped at our house and stayed with us till near 11 o’clock. Read 5 of Tillotson’s sermons. A very hard frost today, but a fine clear healthy air.
