Tuesday, November 1756

…We dined on the remains of Sunday’s dinner with the addition of some pea broth. In the afternoon sent my maid to Framfield, and my brother sent me a present of 5 fine whiting. Paid Dame Trill 3/- in full for keeping Ann Braizer, due yesterday. At home all day. My wife and I papered up 24 lbs tobacco. In the evening wrote out several bills and also read a sermon written by the Rev Robert Jarren D.D. entitled, “The Churchman’s Daily Companion”, which I think an excellent one, on the subject of constantly frequenting public prayers.
